“Social Work Programs and Their Use of Social Media Sites”

This research focuses on how university social work programs are using social media sites, such as Facebook, twitter, and YouTube, to either promote their programs or advocate for change. Key points of focus will include, but are not limited to: what the programs are advocating for, what events and organizations are being promoted, and what school information is being published publicly. By examining in what ways these programs are making use of social media technology, researchers will be able to identify what trends, if any, exist. Once the data collection is completed, we will examine what areas of the programs are being promoted the most and if the social media sites are having a positive impact on the university social work programs. It is our hope that research gathered here will provide data and information necessary for improving the programs’ means of advocacy and self-promotion, both for community-specific and university-related purposes.
