Social Media Requests

The Communications Team has a goal to keep the student body well-informed about events, special announcements, and student advocacy!

Clubs and members of SGA may submit graphics and messages to be posted on SGA's Instagram/Twitter. Please review the procedures below for instructions.

 

Instagram

You may request a story or post. Note that the Coms team will rarely grant approval for Instagram posts, so unless your event/announcement/advocacy is of earth-shattering impact, you should probably stick to a story request!

  1. Create a graphic background for your image that includes all the details of your event (location, date, time, whatever other important details you'd like people to know). We recommend Canva as one of the easiest free tools.

  2. Submit your graphic via email to Abbey Hayes or via Instagram direct message to @LibertyUSGA.

  3. With your graphic submission, include

    1. (required) A brief writeup of your event/announcement/advocacy. The Coms team will use the information in granting or denying requests.

    2. (optional) A brief caption, if submitting a post request.

    3. (optional) A specific time that you would like your submission posted/taken down. The Coms team reserves the right to grant or deny specific timing.

    4. (optional) An Instagram username to tag, if submitting a story request. To prevent clutter, the Coms team will not include links in @LibertyUSGA's bio. Thus, if you'd like to have the classic "link in my bio" line to provide students with more information, you must place your link in the bio of a different account. The Coms team is happy to link to that account.

 

Twitter

You may request a tweet, with video, photo, or just text!

  1. If you are requesting a photo, create a graphic that includes all the essentials of your event/announcement (location, date, time, whatever other important details you'd like people to know). We recommend Canva as one of the easiest free tools to create graphics.

    The same rules apply for text Tweets. Additionally, if 140 characters isn't enough, you'll have to create a link to a Google Form, Doc, or another service where you've posted additional information.

    If you're submitting a video, again, make sure that the essentials are all there. You'll only slow down your approval if the Coms team has to request more information from you.

  2. Make your submissions via email to Abbey Hayes or via Twitter direct message to @LibertyUSGA.

  3. With your submission, include

    1. (required) A brief writeup of your event/announcement/advocacy. The Coms team will use this information in granting or denying requests.

    2. (optional) A specific time that you would like your submission posted/taken down. The Coms team reserves the right to grant or deny specific timing.

 

General Content Guidelines

  1. Do not include, endorse, or link to obscene, derogatory, or blatantly hurtful content. Abide by the Liberty Way and commonly understood standards of decency. The Coms team reserves the right to interpret said standards of decency. If you have questions about whether something is ok, ask before you leap.

  2. Make your content attractive. Your content will be displayed to many thousands of followers who expect a certain standard of quality from SGA's social media.

 

Note on Procedures

The content submission procedures are very simple, mostly serving to put the burden of content creation on the person most dedicated to the message: You!

By submitting a completed graphic to the Coms team instead of a vague request, you ensure that your content is comprehensive, tonally/aesthetically pleasing, and intact in all its facets. Additionally, because the content creation work is removed from Coms team volunteers, the approval process runs more fluidly than it otherwise would.

In accomplishing the goal at the top of this page, the Coms team believes in the efficacy of these procedures. No exceptions will be granted, no matter your position. If you have a dispute with the above, please contact the Chief of Staff.
