Get Connected with Queen’s University Social Media Directory

We really are a social bunch at Queen’s and our new online Social Media Directory is evidence of the variety of ways staff and students are embracing networking technologies.  With over 120 social media accounts registered so far, we are Tweeting, posting and sharing about everything from Archaeology to Widening Participation.  Whether you are a prospective or current student, one of our staff or alumni, or just interested in what’s happening at Queen’s, there are a plethora of ways that you can connect with our online community.

The Social Media Directory Home Page

So how can you find social media accounts that interest you?  The Social Media Directory home page lists the Schools, Research Centres, Support Services and Clubs & Societies that are interacting online.  You can filter the results by clicking on a Category button (for example, Schools) and the list can be sorted in ascending/descending alphabetical order by clicking the Name column heading.  You can also sort the results by social media platform (for example, Facebook) by clicking the column headings – hold down the SHIFT key to sort by multiple headings.  Or, you can enter a key word into the Search box to find accounts related to the area you are interested in.  If there are a lot of results, use the arrow buttons to go to the next page of results.

Use the search tools in the Social Media Directory to find accounts that interest you

When you find a School, department or other unit that you are interested in, click any of the icons displayed in the results to go directly to that social media account, or click the Profile button to visit their profile page.  Here you will find links to all their registered social media accounts and a link to their website.  There may also be suggestions of other related social media accounts that could interest you.
