Getting Social

Let’s Get Social

Ole Miss has a powerful voice on social media (Don’t believe us? Search for #hottytoddy on Twitter or Instagram!). Whether it be students, parents, faculty, staff, teams, alumni, departments or friends of our university, all of us have one thing in common – The University of Mississippi. With an ever-growing list of platforms like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and Pinterest, social media has allowed our university to reach local, regional and international audiences instantly. It’s allowed our institution to engage with thousands and share the Ole Miss experience in a dynamic way.

The University of Mississippi supports student, faculty and staff usage of social media and online communities. This document outlines the ways in which you may safely and effectively create an even more powerful presence on social media within university guidelines. By following these guidelines and working together, it will allow us to spread our messages to an even broader audience.

This document applies to individuals posting on behalf of the university, but it could also prove helpful for anyone using social media in any capacity. This living, breathing document will be updated by representatives in University Communications as social media evolves.
