Social media tools and apps permeate many aspects of our lives, and help us connect with other people at any time. It is almost essential to network online in order to find a job, but social media can also help us communicate, learn, collect and share information, and find people with similar interests. 

As with any physical or virtual tool, social media applications can be used to great advantage or, in some cases, misused. This guide will help you determine what apps might best fit each of your needs, and offers advice for how to use social media to maximize its benefits. You will also find contact information for campus offices that can help you create and market your social media pages.
