The Use of Social Media in Building Interest in Wellness on a College Campus
Field, Joseph A.; Elbert, Dennis J.; Moser, Steven B.
American Journal of Business Education, v5 n5 p515-524 2012
The usage of social media networks, such as websites like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, had become the number one activity on the internet by 2010. The sweeping increase in usage led organizations to explore the marketing possibilities the networks offered. The turning point occurred when organizations began to ask whether it was feasible to use social media networks as a primary marketing strategy and reduce or ultimately replace traditional marketing efforts. A pilot project focused on a marketing plan that was implemented at a student fitness center, using social media networks as the primary marketing strategy.
