How often do I need to post an update on Facebook?
Not too often. Consider the audience or the group. How often is everyone else posting? Is it needed? Do you have something important to add to the discussion? Should I just be building off existing posts?
Maybe 1-3 times a day if you have something valuable to add - at the least, weekly.
Don’t post 3 updates, post 5 photos, comment on 7 things in 30 minutes, then walk away from it for a week – it might look like spamming your audience. Look at what has been posted recently by other administrators – did they just post something 5 minutes ago? Is so, wait till some more time has past.
Can I have a work account and a personal account on Facebook?
No. Facebook terms and conditions do not allow this. Facebook do regular audits and you can have you accounts suspended or deleted. This has happened to teachers at TAFE already.
Just make sure you have changed your privacy settings and look at seeting up Lists on Facebook.
What happens if someone posts some bad feedback about TAFE in my group or page?
You always need to respond. It will depend on the type of bad feedback as to how you respond.
Can I have my own Facebook page for my section at my campus?
North Coast TAFE cannot prevent anyone setting up a page, because Facebook is open.
However, we do not encourage this, and there is no support for doing so. We encourage using the existing campus Facebook pages to engage with new and potential customers, business and the community.
You are more likely to get engagement as people know the campus within the community. There is also the potential to reach a greater audience who you might not of reached before.
An unattended, unmonitored Facebook page for a section sends a worse message to customers of being slow, uninteresting, or you don't run the courses anymore.
I want to advertise my course vacancies on Facebook, can I?
Potentially. Whilst applications/enrollment dates are promoted via campus Facebook pages, they aren’t meant for “pushing” courses, and if we do it will alienate our “fans”. So, only sections that have staff prepared to take on the role of coordinating a once per week, very short, engaging Facebook post about your current courses/vacancies plus actively monitor and answer questions or comment about it, will be able to use the campus Facebook page for this purpose.
You can request paid advertising for Facebook though.
I have taken photos of my students at an event, can I upload them to Facebook?
Yes, if you have a permission to publish form signed by the students. Facebook is like any other website - you can't publish a photo of the student without their permission.
You could however, get the students to upload the photos themselves onto the Facebook page, this takes the responsibility (and the work) out of your hands.
