MODULE: Promote Yourselves
Facebook is a brilliant resource for networking your society to other students who may have similar interests!
Setting up a Facebook Page
We recommended using a page rather then a group to communicate with prospective members.
The use of a Facebook page is a lot more user-friendly to prospective members, in comparison for having to join a private group. This also allows for better promotion of all your events and activities.
The Facebook page allows the logo to remain the consistent profile picture, with the cover photo being able to adapt to upcoming events.
As a society, you are representing BSU when posting online. We must ask that you refrain from posting anything inappropriate or offensive. Failure to do so will lead to your account being taken down and in extreme circumstances, further consequences.
Important to Note: What goes on Facebook will always be there (even when deleted) and will be accessible by the authority. Do NOT post/share inappropriate content that could harm the reputation of the Society, the Brighton Students Union or the University of Brighton.
Setting up Access
As a member of the committee, everyone is entitled to have full access to the Facebook Page as a moderator.
The VP Social should be responsible for set up of any new committee positions during the handover process.
Please Note: No member should post/share anything that is not directly related to the running of the society.
When sending messages on behalf of the society, it’s important to be professional and polite. The reputation of the society and Brighton Students’ Union will be effected if poor conduct is used.
Upon receiving commercial requests, please direct people to the Sales and Contract Manager, Aaron. His email is email@example.com
It’s really important to remember your affiliation with Brighton Student’s Union when you post your event photos on Facebook.
Make sure to remove any inappropriate images that could offend someone, and if you are contacted to remove a photo, you have an obligation to do so.
Not sure if an image is inappropriate? Come and check with us!
