Social media users meet on campus monthly

This is a guest post from Stephanie Skordas on behalf of the University’s social media users group:

Do you run a Wake Forest University department, office, program or school social media account? Then you’ll want to know about our monthly social media users group, #soccoffee. (It’s pronounced shosh-coffee.) It’s a chance for us to share ideas and challenges, talk through campaigns, and learn from best practices.

The meetings are generally held the second Friday of the month at 9:30 a.m. at locations across campus. But not this month. We are meeting on Friday, February 23 at 9:30 a.m. in Farrell Hall, classroom 157. If you can’t meet this month, no worries. Please email Stephanie Skordas to be added to the email list for the next notice.

Stephanie Skordas is senior associate director of communications in the School of Business.
