UNC Charlotte just passed an important milestone online. We now have more than 30,000 followers on the world’s most popular social network. We have, by far, the largest higher education Facebook page in this part of North Carolina, and one of the largest Facebook sites overall in Charlotte. Every week, more than 140,000 people see our posts. They like them, comment on them, share them with their friends and interact with us in ways that were never possible before.
Facebook is a powerful social network with more than one billion users worldwide. What does UNC Charlotte do on the world’s most powerful social network? Every week, on the main University Facebook page, we tell the UNC Charlotte story through information, events, photos, videos and countless opportunities to connect with Charlotte’s urban research university.
In the past few weeks we’ve shared a story about one of our new Levine Scholars from right here in Charlotte, posted a live stream of our fall University Convocation, gave our returning students information about Week of Welcome, and posted pictures of excited alumni as they gear up for our first home football game ever on August 31!
