Sharing BCC news and events, or promoting faculty and student work through social media tools is an excellent, low-cost way to engage the community and build the College’s brand. Faculty and staff are encouraged to use these sites to repost and share information that is available to the public (press releases, calendar events, articles in the OnCampus or Update Newsletters etc.) with their family and friends. The best way to share college news is to link to the original source. Please be sure to follow the guidelines below when sharing information that is not a matter of public record.
