An Examination of Social Media Policy Usage of South Central United States' Universities
Eaton, Virginia J.; Luse, Donna W.; Hodge, Thomas G.
Journal of Academic Administration in Higher Education, v8 n1 p33-41 Spr 2012
Since the use of social media tools by universities has expanded exponentially, a university can easily find itself in a precarious situation in a moment's notice because social media tools have been used inadvertently. This study investigated the social media policies of AACSB-International accredited schools in the SREB South Central Region of the United States as posted on university web sites. Results from this study showed that although the majority of these universities have links to social media tools on their university web sites, a minimal number of universities have social media policies posted. Given the popularity of social media tools and the results of this study, it is evident that more universities need to develop and/or publish their policies on their web sites. A bibliography is included.
