Joining the BGSU social media community

Before managing or creating a social media account that represents Bowling Green State University, please review the following.

A University-affiliated social media account is a responsibility to the University and a time-commitment. As a community where we all belong, content must be accessible. To be successful and to ensure your time is well-spent, audience size, growth, frequency of posting, content and platform best practices are all things to take into consideration.

Fractured audiences are not typically very effective. For example, if you are a department, we recommend collaborating with your college social media account to post content, rather than creating additional social media profiles, which splits up your audience.

If, after reviewing the below, you would like a consultation or assistance, please email Brianna Blackburn,

Before creating a social media account affiliated with BGSU, take the following steps:

  • If you are approved to create said social media account, we will follow up with you to set up a consultation and complete the social media contract.
  • You will also be added to the BGSU social media user listservs and to the directory of BGSU accounts.
