UNCG boasts a lively community of Twitter and Instagram users – see some examples below – but these popular apps can be intimidating for “newbies.”
Faculty and staff who want to learn the basics of these platforms are invited to a brown bag tutorial on Thursday, Feb. 6.
The tutorial will take place from noon to 2 p.m. in EUC Dogwood. Morgan Glover, social media manager in University Communications, will show participants how to set up accounts, post content, and interact with other users, including fellow Spartans.
Morgan will address the group during the first half-hour, and then answer individual questions. Participants can stay for the entire time, or visit during the second hour for a quick check-in. Although Morgan will focus on Instagram and Twitter, she will answer questions about other social media apps.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend. Participants should bring their lunch and a mobile device with the apps installed.
And by the way, here is a sampling of Twitter feeds and Instagram feeds from around campus to give some inspiration to how you may want to approach them:
