Why Social Media?
IF FACEBOOK were a country, it would be
the largest country in the world. There are
more Facebook users than there are people
in any country.
≈ 2.6 Billion active monthly FB users (vs. ≈1.4b
residents of China and ≈1.35b residents of
India and ≈331 million U.S. residents )
The world’s second most popular search engine
is YOUTUBE. YouTube is owned by #1 search
engine GOOGLE
There are ≈ 192 million daily active users on
TWITTER in 2021.

Why Do YOU Want to Use
Social Media?

 Promote a brand/ business or get a job
 Learn new things
 Follow people who you respect
 Share your opinions
 Other reasons?
Develop a Social Media
“Game Plan”
 Platforms for professional use only?
 Platforms for personal use only?
 Personal and professional use? (one account or two?)
 “Off Limits” content (e.g., politics, controversial topics)
 Having a “game plan” (a.k.a., “guardrails”) will help you
determine what (and what not) to read and share online….
and to stay in your lane
My Guardrails
 Positive words
 Pretty pictures
 Useful information and links
 “Barbservations”
 No controversial topics
 No politics
 No shaming and blaming
What are YOUR “Guardrails”?
Volunteers to share
your thoughts?
Good Rule of the Road:
Don’t post anything that you
would not say to someone F2F
or write in a newspaper letter
to the editor!
Visuals Increase Engagement
by “Slowing People Down”

Social Media Photo Collages
Twitter 101
Log on to www.twitter.com
Determine your username and
password

drive your user name

Also determine a graphic image

 Graphic image
Twitter Profile
Twitter Profile Tips
 Use your real name
 Use a high-quality photo
 Use a high-quality header image (1,500 px x 1,500 px)
 Include credentials
 Tell prospective followers who you are and what you do in
160 characters or less
 Include a URL to your blog or website
 Tweak and update as needed
You Have 280 Characters to
Say Something
The circle fills in blue as the number of characters
increases; turns gold when you exceed the limit
Tweet Length
 Typical tweet length is less than 50 characters even with
2018 increase from 140 characters to 280:
https://www.theverge.com/2018/2/8/16990308/twitter-
280-character-tweet-length
 If you “run long,” substitute and smush to save characters
 4 for “for” and 2 for “to” or “too”
 #creditcards
 You can also create Twitter threads:
https://help.twitter.com/en/using-twitter/create-a-
thread
Hashtags Are a Data Magnet
 Choose hashtags mindfully
 People search hashtags for content (like a key word)
 See #Explore for searches and to see trending hashtags
 Frequently used hashtags pop up automatically (just click)
 Hashtag words are frequently smushed together (e.g.,
#financialeducation, #creditcards, and #AshWednesday)
 Don’t overuse hashtags in a tweet (e.g., every other word)
Notifications
Likes, Retweets, New Followers, Mentions, Direct Messages

Monitor and Schedule
Tweets With Hootsuite

Facebook 101
Log on to www.facebook.com
Determine your username and password; write
them down in your digital assets inventory:
https://njaes.rutgers.edu/money/pdfs/Digital
-Assets-Worksheet.pdf
Write a short bio and complete your profile, as
comfortable (e.g., job. education, home town,
current city, website; some profile info can be
public or not, depending on what you select)
Also, select two graphic images: cover photo
(big header) and profile photo (small photo)
that is also the “icon” for your tweets
Examples of profile images:
 Personal or family photo
 Logo
 Graphic images
