Here’s more media on UW-Green Bay sending out acceptance letters via Instagram.
Making statewide news this week is a story about UW-Green Bay now announcing prospective students’ acceptance into one of the four UW-Green Bay campuses by Instagram, as well as traditional methods. Fox 11 was the first to report on the story.
UW-Green Bay Social Media Coordinator Jena Richter Landers is looking for students, staff, alumni, faculty and administration to host the LifeatUWGB Instagram account. Volunteer hosts show “followers” a slice of life at UW-Green Bay. Shifts are a week long. Interested parties at the branch campuses are encouraged to apply! To nominate someone you think may be interested, email email@example.com.
UW-Green Bay’s Social Media Coordinator Jena Richter Landers ’13 (Communication) encourages people to consider what they post on social media — and what others post about them. Fox 11 interviewed Richter Landers on the impact of social media, especially in the professional world. She reminds us that everything we post about ourselves on social media can be shared with others with just one click and interpreted different than we assumed. “You have to consider not only what you’re posting publicly, but what other people are posting about you,” Richter Landers says.
Making sure your résumé looks professional when searching for jobs is important, but social media is becoming an efficient tool to show offs kills and professionalism to hiring managers. Philip Clampitt, UW-Green Bay Chair of Communication and Information Science, was interviewed by Post Crescent on the role of social media in job search. “You build your reputation on LinkedIn, or even Facebook, by talking about projects, things you’ve done in class, presentations you’ve made, or experiences you’ve had to show you’re continually learning,” he says. Clampitt is the author of “Social Media Strategy: Tools for Professionals and Organizations.” Full story available via the Post-Crescent.

“Social media is anything but a passing fad – which means even the most senior leadership needs to pay attention.” UW-Green Bay Prof. Phil Clampitt shares what executives need to know about social media strategy in this blog post.
UW-Green Bay social media coordinator Jena Richter Landers was a key source in a recent social media blog. “Snapchat was a large part of UW-Green Bay’s social media strategy, and while it continues to be used, the fact that it doesn’t offer archived analytics has increasingly become an issue,” reported Jena Richter Landers. “After seeing a drastic drop in reach after recent changes to the platform’s delivery of stories, we’ve moved some of the content that we had been putting out on Snapchat Stories to Instagram Stories to receive higher return on investment and more easily measured metrics” (Landers, 2018).
