Social media is a convenient way to connect with friends and family, but you may also use it to promote events, publications, and other activities happening at the University.

Like any other online account, you should take steps to make sure your information is secure. Here are a few smart social media steps:

  • Use a strong password.
  • Enable two-factor authentication whenever available.
  • Check privacy settings, and make sure you accept how your information is being shared.
  • Before accepting friend requests or direct messages, check to make sure you are comfortable communicating with that person.
