Let us know if you have a  social network  and would like to be added to our list of social networks and blogs.

If you have a website make sure to include a link to your social networks. Some social networks have an application programming interface (API) that can be leveraged by your website to display information from the social network. Sometimes, it’s simply copying a bit of code (called embed code or widgets) and pasting it onto your website. If you’re interested in finding ways to better incorporate and promote your social networks let us know. Our WordPress website owners have some social media sharing options.

Public relations staff in your department can assist if you have questions about social networks and how to use them.
