Social Media Assignment (Brand, Voice, and Copy)

WRIT's social media brand manager Mallory Hicks visited the noon section to talk about our vision for rolling out the new brand along with the updated curriculum this semester. Here are some of the ideas that she discussed with hthe class and some of the content ideas that the class brainstormed. 


For this phase of the rebranding, we will only be using the big 3 social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Once these are established, we will be looking to incorporate additional platforms such as SnapChat, a YouTube channel, Pinterest, and others. For now, here's how we're looking at the big 3. 


This will be our "parent" account and the voice will reflect that. It is mainly used as a central hub for tracking contact information for current students, alumni, faculty, and others interested in the discipline. It will be connected with Twitter and Instagram so that posts are shared across platforms but will not be publishing a lot of original content. This is where people can find event information and connect with the community.
