NAME YOUR SITE

Follow these JWU standards for naming your social media site.

START NAME MANAGE

As an example, we'll use JWU's Denver Campus Residential Life department:

Naming Convention

Use this standard: JWU + Campus Code + Department Name:

JWU Denver Residential Life
JWUDenResLife
CLEAN URLS

You can put the web address "cleanly" on a flyer, handout or banner.

Campus Codes

Since JWU has 4 regional campuses, always include your campus code so users are clear which campus the site refers to:

CONSISTENT USERNAMES

Use the same username on all of your sites, for better branding and visibility.

Facebook

Learn how to choose the username (what is after the facebook.com/) and the name of the page:

Page Name

JWU Denver Res Life (or you can do JWU Denver Residential Life)

Username

JWUDenverResLife

To create your username:

  1. Go to your Admin Panel
  2. Click "Update Page Info"
  3. In the Page Info tab, go to Facebook web address
  4. Make your Facebook Username

Sometimes Facebook may require that you have 25 fans before choosing a name.

Twitter and Instagram

For both of these sites you want the username to always be the same, so they carry over.

Page Name

JWU Denver Res Life

Username

@jwudenreslife

15-CHARACTER USERNAME

Twitter will only allow your username to be 15 characters.
