  • +
  • + Results and discussion  Hootsuite and Vocus yielded no social media results (part due to the lack features such as backdated search, archival options, keyword search restrictions)  None of the platforms searched country-specific social media networks (i.e. Ren Ren or Sina Weibo)
  • + Implications  Access  Resources (human, financial, technical)  Languages  Strategy
  • + Social media strategy for HEIs  Social media part of a wider strategy but needs its own goals and objectives in line with wider organizational goals  Target audience research is essential  Social media needs monitoring on a daily basis (trends research and monitoring, content planning  human resources implications)  Financial implications  Cultural implications and considerations
