Social Media Club at KU Coverage on University Daily Kansan
Thank you Corey Thibodeaux for featuring Social Media Club at KU (SMCKU) on Kansan.com. Our tabling event during the Hawk Week was a huge success and I look forward to our first meeting on Sept. 1.
Social media can do much more than just connect you with friends.
It’s a network, a continuous stream of consciousness enabling users to find jobs and windows of opportunities. A new group on campus is planning to make sure students are aware of social networking.
Maya Tao, a senior from China, and Joe Davis, a senior from Coventry, Conn., founded the University’s chapter of the Social Media Club. Its goal is to stress the importance of social networking in the non-traditional sense.
“If you are not online and someone is searching you, you are in big trouble,” Tao said.
The Social Media Club is an organization with chapters all over the world that aims to promote the practices of social networking, including ethical behavior and literacy.
The group isn’t meant to tell people how to use Facebook or Twitter, but how not to use them.
