Faculty learns social media

ULM Hawkeye

Faculty and staff attended a social media workshop last Thursday to learn about the importance of responsible posting.

Many examples were given to emphasize how one post can turn into one big mess, especially in the era of professor-student friendships on Facebook and in-class Twitter utilization.

Mara Loeb, associate professor of communication, attended the workshops, which she said were beneficial.

“So many times we are alone when we make entries on social media, we tend to forget how WIDE our audience can be!  I though the legal cases she used for illustrations helped remind us of the potential such communication has,” said Loeb.
