Find your school’s voice in the Facebook Bootcamp at Bishop Brady High School in Concord, NH
Knowing how to leverage your Facebook page is only half the battle. Staying up with the persistent changes is becoming exponentially harder as Facebook continues to innovate. For Facebook administrators, it’s one more place to displace your time, and it’s hard to keep up.
With more than 800 million active users (as of October of 2011), Facebook has arguably become one of the most effective places for schools to spend their time in social media. With more than 50% of active users logging into Facebook on any given day, that’s a reach of potentially 400 million users every single day.
But no matter what the statistics, your school must be creating compelling content to get your constituents to see the content, and generate an engaging conversation to increase your interaction rate (which will, in turn, get your story into the news feed of your constituents). So how does your school swing it? Join edSocialMedia on Nov. 15 at Bishop Brady High School for a Facebook Bootcamp experience, a new workshop in a series of exciting new trainings offered by edSocialMedia.
edSocialMedia’s Facebook bootcamp allows participants to spend a day in a hands-on workshop where they will learn how to create and administer a dynamic Facebook Page.
