Who can use social media?

BYU–Hawaii departments may use Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media tools as a communication channel.

How should BYUH use social media?

These channels should be used to provide value to students, explain the purpose of the department, announce events, and aid students in navigating university life. Each account should have a distinct purpose, audience, and content plan. New accounts must be approved by University Communications before creation. All current accounts must be verified through social media procedures.

We request that all departments host and post videos on the official university YouTube account. Individual channels may be available upon request.
