Traditionally, Higher Ed Live’s discussions revolve around how colleges should use social media to tell our campus story, connect with alumni, current, and prospective students, but we rarely spend as much […]
I’ve spent months now trying to understand the “selfie” post. The photo of a person taken by that same person, often drinking Starbucks and wearing sunglasses while flirtatiously eyeing the camera.

Sometimes we browse Amazon reviews or look for Consumer Reports’ confirmation. Sometimes brand reputation affects us or we solicit our friend’s recommendations. But the beautiful future of perfect decision making based on wholly […]
After six years of traveling nationally as a college admissions counselor, I have come to greatly appreciate the technology at my fingertips. I have also come to learn that no matter how many times I have done the same trip, recruitment travel will inevitably become a blur.

The new school year is upon us. And that means your social media team is busy creating a content calendar for the semester, and thinking up fun new ways to engage a brand new class of students on Facebook, right? “What about some sort of contest?” they say. Great idea. But before you get too […]
