Can You Pass the Social Media License Test? Social Media TOS Crash Course

#MPD3 Management and Professional Development Track

Room 106B


There is no such thing as the Social Media License Test.

Whether you join Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest or any other social media platform, you can still check the "I agree" box without reading any of their lengthy terms of service (TOS). Despite all the talk about social media policies in higher education, basic TOS infractions are still common place.

What you don't know as a social media professional can hurt your work, so don't toss the TOS!

In this session, you'll get the CliffNotes version of the major terms any social media professional working in higher education should know and why it's a bad idea to ignore the rules in social media land.
