Social Media Guidelines

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

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

Instagram

You may request a story or post. Note: Instagram posts are approved based on the relevance of the event. It is recommended smaller events request an Instagram story. 

  1. Create a graphic that includes all the details of your event (location, date, time, other important details you’d like people to know). We recommend using Canva, a free tool, to create your graphic.
  2. Submit your graphic by emailing ahayes26@liberty.edu or via Instagram direct message to @LibertyUSGA.
  3. With your graphic submission, include
    1. (required) A brief write-up of your event/announcement/advocacy. The Communications 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 Communications 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 Communications Team will not include links in @LibertyUSGA‘s bio. If you would like to direct your audience to a particular link for more information, you should place the link in the bio of a different account. The Communications Team can then direct your audience 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 details of your event (location, date, time, other important details you’d like people to know). We recommend using Canva, a free tool, to create your graphic.
  2. . The same rules apply for text Tweets. Additionally, if 140 characters isn’t enough, you’ll need to create a link to a Google Form, Doc, or another service where you’ve posted additional information. If you’re submitting a video, make sure that the essentials are all there. 
  3. Email your submissions to ahayes26@liberty.edu or via Twitter direct message to @LibertyUSGA.
  4. With your submission, include
    1. (required) A brief write-up of your event/announcement/advocacy. The Communications 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 Communications 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 Communications Team reserves the right to interpret said standards of decency. Email ahayes26@liberty.edu with any questions.
  2. Make your content attractive. Your content will be displayed to a wide audience 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 Communications Team, you ensure that your content is comprehensive, tonally/aesthetically pleasing, and complete. Additionally, because the content creation work is removed from Communications Team volunteers, the approval process runs more fluidly than it otherwise would.

In accomplishing the goal at the top of this page, the Communications 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.
