3: Content for Facebook

  1. 1. 3. Content for Facebook 1
  2. 2. Don’t jump into Facebook until you have considered your overallcommunications strategy and the part FB will play Facebook is part of the strategy, not all of it 2
  3. 3. A communication strategy begins with outcomes – In this modern age of communications, once the strategic outcomes have been developed, you then work on the content and context that will achieve your communication goals. 3

  5. 5. Workshop 1• In groups (4 or 5)• Create a list of communication outcomes 5
  6. 6. Outcomes vs Content• Shift negative performance perceptions – Promote naplan results and comparative scores• Raise teacher profile – 1 teacher per f/night; promote capabilities & personality• Celebrate successes – Weekly sports results – Community service 6
  7. 7. Workshop 1a• From your communication outcomes, choose some content that will achieve the outcomes? 7
  8. 8. Tip• When constructing your communication planner, determining the best medium will be influenced by content that needs to be archived and content that’s more disposable.• Examples – A ‘spirit builder’ on fb doesn’t need to reside on your website – A reminder is a perfect use of fb, with the event residing in your website’s calendar 8
