Set sail towards social media! Social media instructions for people at UEF
People at UEF are encouraged to be active on social media. The university has published a recommendation on the use of social media, and this recommendation is now supplemented by a new, down-to-earth guide: “A UEF guide to sailing smoothly in social media.” The guide is available as a video and as a PDF, which can of course also be printed out. The idea of the simple guidelines is to inspire and support people in the use of social media.
Sea ahoy, see you on social media!
