Social Media Summary:

Followers as of December 1, 2016:

YouTube – 102

LinkedIn – 25,135

Facebook: 13,445 followers

Videos trumped all other types of posts yet again! The most popular post by far (with 38,312 views, 901 likes, and 445 shares) was our food cart video. The video was a success and also produced great results for Dining Services through a business increase – possibly even causing them to increase their hours. The second most popular post was the #GratitudeProject video. These types of videos say “We are a community” and the GC family loves that! We have plans to do more videos like this.

Twitter: 8,357 followers

With Twitter, we have discovered that the most popular posts are graphics, particularly ones that relate to holidays and national events. My most popular post this month was in regards to voting day and the second most popular was a graphic for Veterans Day. Twitter seems to be less and less about words and more about images, so we will keep utilizing infographics and striking images.

Instagram: 6,186 followers

A 2.5% follower increase this month, our most popular posts were yet again campus beauty shots. With the beautiful fall trees, the GC audience seems to like those photos the most. The posting was less frequent this month because of the holiday, but we are steadily increasing our audience.
