    • 5. The Big Four
    • 6. Fact: 54% of facebook users are over the age of 25. There are 168.8 million users of Facebook in the United States.
    • 7. Ok.. So Why is Facebook Useful? In it’s simplest form, Facebook is used to connect with people you already know. Those friends you see once every 5 years? Perfect! Colleague who moved to Germany? Great! Good friends you see often? Absolutely.
    • 8. Twitter can be used for more than getting the news faster than any of the traditional networks. Tweets are are short messages blasted to the world limited to 140 characters.
    • 9. To the world seems like a bit much… But that’s the point. Twitter allows you to share your perceptions, thoughts, ideas with the world. In short, twitter is a tool that broadcasts to the world.
    • 10. The youngest addition to the social media family. Google’s brand of a social media site. It may be new, but it is not small. Google Plus is the second most used social media site in the world, surpassing twitter with 359 million active users.

    • 12. The serious social media site. Job searching. Professional Networking done from the comfort of your couch. The one time it’s not weird to connect with your boss. Gaining introductions through a mutual contact.
    • 13. Why connect? You get to “showcase” your work and ideas without it being weird or socially unacceptable. For portraying yourself in a serious way. Used for doing business. You may not want to use it for yourself but it is a tool through which you can help recognize your students skills.

    • 17. The 5 Steps to Creating an Effective Social Media Presence
    • 18. 1. What is your image? People make split second decisions, often based on appearances. So, make it catchy! Show what you like! Your interests! Tell something about yourself!
    • 19. Image Basics Photo: Should be 90% your face. Show what you have done! Show your interests. For those of you worried about privacy, there are lots of settings. Don’t feel pressured to share more than you are comfortable and you would be ok having appear on the front page of the NY Times.
    • 20. 2. Content Ok so you have a picture. What else? Why should people care about looking at your page or profile? Why should people read your tweets?
    • 21. Content basics Be a curator! Use links – to other parts of website, to interesting stories, show the original source It is ok to repeat content! You can re-tweet and re-post. You can even ask to be retweeted or shared! Feeling overwhelmed and like you have nothing to say? That’s ok! Who really does anyways? Use Bitly!
    • 22. More tips • Don’t over do it o Post informational tools, not just things about yourself • Use pictures! o Wikimedia • Cheat! o The one time cheating is ok (shhhh don’t tell your students!) o Find out what is trending and post about it! People will be more likely to follow you! o Make sure to link to the original source or simply reshare or repost!
    • 23. 3. Call to Action! So people saw your profile, were like hmmmm.. This is interesting. Then they read your profile and were like hmmmm this is even more interesting.. Now what?
    • 24. As professors at Villanova Law School, we can bring attention to the school, get more students, better speakers, bigger donors. How? Create a social media presence, you’ve got their attention. Now keep it! Ask for emails, ask for feedback, keep in touch! Keep them interested.
    • 25. 4. Engage People are commenting on your things! People are liking what you put on your profile! What do you do?!?
    • 26. Engagement basics Respond to comments! Comment on other people’s postings! Like things! Social Media is NOT a oneway street! It is a platform for communication! I don’t want to sound like Dr. Phil but… communication takes more than one person doing the talking.
    • 27. 5. Start Yesterday We realize this is impossible. But it doesn’t mean you can’t start today!
    • 28. This could be you. Yesterday? Don’t feel like you need to have everything together to begin a social media profile. Media moves fast! It is almost like promoting the book, writing the book, building excitement for the book, and selling the book all at once! You just need to start somewhere.
    • 29. Feeling totally overwhelmed and like you still live in the dinosaur age? You’re probably not the only one.
    • 30. Just ask. We can get you started 
    • 31. Basically, it works.
