    Schools App News and Updates 

    Use Schools App to connect with and help students.  Join Schools App now!

    Here’s a staff testimonial:  “In my opinion, I think that the Schools App is a great tool for C&E!  Any time we can directly contact a student on a more personal level, I think it benefits our office.  I think for students, being able to ask questions and receive an answer not from a generalized source (like on our Career and Employment FB page) but from one of us personally, makes the student(s) feel like they have a closer and more comfortable relationship to our office. I think the more we can interact with students daily, the more we can reach them and encourage them to come to our office or approach us if they have questions/concerns/etc.”  – Brittany Bonds, San Jacinto College Career and Employment Center (More …)

    Social Media Tip 

    If you don’t have much time to check your personal social media accounts during the day, spend about 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes at the end of the day checking your notifications, messages and news feed.
    For example, find out who you can connect with on LinkedIn.  Check LinkedIn groups.  If you can participate in a discussion, do it.  Answer questions.  Ask questions.  Browse through your news in LinkedIn.  Share San Jac news in LinkedIn.  Is there a big event going on at the College?  Share it! Do we have a new program?  Share it!  Was your colleague recognized for an award?  Share it!
    You can do all or some of this in just 15 minutes.

    Social Media Privacy Settings 

    If your social media account is public, then everyone and anyone can see what you are posting and it will show up in an Internet search.  If you are ok with a public profile, then you must be cautious of what you share.  Here’s how you can change your privacy settings on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

    Facebook
    Go to Privacy Settings on your profile. Click edit under “Who can see my stuff?” If you only want your Facebook friends to see your posts, choose Friends.  This is what we recommend.

    FB Privacy Settings

     

    Instagram
    Click on “Edit Your Profile.” At the bottom, you have an option to make your posts private. This allows you to approve anyone who has requested to follow you. Only those who you have approved can see your posts. If you are a private user, the hashtags you use in your photos are not searchable.

    Instagram Privacy Settings

    Twitter
    Go to your settings. Choose “Security and Privacy” on the left. If you decide to protect your tweets, anyone who wants to follow you will have to be approved by you. Only your followers will see your tweets.

    Twitter Privacy Settings

    There’s so much more to social media than just Facebook. It’s true. Facebook is the most used social network in the world with 1.11 billion (Yes. That’s BILLION) monthly active users, but there are several other networks that are quickly growing.

    #Hashtags for Social Media 

    Some of you have already heard that you can now use hashtags on Facebook.  It was a big announcement for social media and Facebook.  Here’s a few things you need to know about hashtags and how to use them on your personal and college social media sites.

    What is a hashtag?  The # symbol, we used to know it as “pound,” is used to mark a word, phrase or topic on social media.  It’s basically a way to organize messages.  Using a hashtag will help others search for social media content that they are interested in.  It groups conversations.  For example, if you are looking for topics, Tweets, photos or articles related to social media, search #socialmedia.  The results will show all the conversations including #socialmedia. (See image from Hootsuite)  You can also think of a hashtag like a keyword tag.  You are tagging that photo or conversation so that is is easily searchable to your audience.  If you want to make sure people see your message, use a hashtag.  This could also result in more followers on your social media site.

    hashtags

     

    • When you click on a hashtagged word, it shows other posts or Tweets containing that same hashtagged word.
    • You can put hashtags at the beginning, middle or end of your message.
    • When your hashtagged word becomes popular, it shows up under the “Trending Topics” in Twitter.  This is good if you want more exposure for your message.
    • Try using an established hashtag so that your message is seen in a conversation that is already very active.
    • A hashtag is searchable by anyone, as long as you are using a public account.
    • Make sure not to get hashtag-happy.  In the case of Twitter, it’s recommended you use no more than two hashtags per Tweet.
    • Use hashtags relevant to the picture or topic.
    • Long hashtags are becoming more popular, but you have to be careful when you create a long one.  Longer hashtags can result in misspellings and are harder to read.  It’s best that you create a short one, if possible.  A helpful tip for longer hashtags is capitalize the first letter of each word.  That will make it easier for people to read.  For example, I use #YourGoalsYourCollege as much as possible.  It’s long, but it’s easy to read.

    Here are some examples of hashtags to use when referring to San Jacinto College:

    • #SanJac
    • #SJC
    • #SanJacCollege
    • #SanJacintoCollege
    • #YourGoalsYourCollege
    • #StudentSuccess
    • #comm_college
    • #edu
    • #HigherEd
    • #EdTEch

    Remember that you create a hashtag for anything.  Just make sure it is relevant to the message you want to convey.
