  • Interactions – comments/wall posts/likes
  • More analytics

  • Facebook to your school site
  • In sumConsumers make decisions using not just traditional marketing messages but messages shared and created by their peers.Parents, alumni, students, even faculty use social media sites to connect with one another and share/publish content.Independent schools can and should provide authentic space and place for these conversations.Value-added nature of independent schools – we form meaningful relationships with our constituents in ways our public school peers cannot.In an uncertain economy, no better time to let go, listen and learn.
  • Kimball Union – Alumni party in Bostonbusiness men and retired folks nice, formal invitations posted the event on FACEBOOK – a photo of the Boston skyline with FREE PARTY on it young alums who we would never have seen in the past

  • More than 200 million active users More than 100 million users log on to Facebook at least once each day More than two-thirds of Facebook users are outside of college The fastest growing demographic is those 35 years old and oldeConsider that the average time spent on Facebook is 19 minutes a day.
  • Personal profile
  • Personal Profiles:Oldest way to connectFacebook was built for thisMembers – FriendsEasiest to connect with folksYou must use your personal profile – Lorrie Jackson – as your contact. NO Phoney ProfilesCons – sacrifice your personal experience on Facebook AND folks must know you very very well to find you (can’t search for your school on facebook).Robin Kennedy, tampa prep, 26 yrs, well known as alumni dir. 844 friends.
  • GroupsMembers are membersPros:Acts a lot like personal profileSending messages goes straight to inboxCons:Little separation btwn administrators and members (no personal space)No way to track trafficFew bells and whistles
