If you're here, you already know the value of social media. You've probably already thought of creating a social media mashup for your university. You've probably asked yourself about what could possibly be the quickest and most cost-effective way to enhance your social media presence to your students, parents, alumni, and other stake holders.
You've come to the right place.
The SMASHUP project started with the primary purpose of helping Higher Education Institutions get the most out of existing and future social media initiatives and, most importantly, helping them achieve these goals cost-effectively while keeping an eye on future scalability in this fast evolving field. And let’s face it: social media might be “free” and replete with potential, but can easily represent a morass of unorganized information that is neither here nor there.
This is where a mashup brings enormous value.
SMASHUPs bring together all of the university-wide social media into one central, branded hub. And that doesn’t mean lists of links on a page - it is a complete social media content aggregator.
This innovative integration of Social Media and our SMASHUP management system drives your social media efforts to their full potential. Instead of simply attaching social media links to your website SMASHUP aggregates your social media content into one place. It allows your website to be the home of your Twitter or Facebook feeds, Flickr photos, YouTube videos, and more - making it easy for your audience to view all aspects of your social media and easy for you to manage.
The goal of SMASHUP is to bring all of your social media initiatives together in one central place to create a branded, interactive website. It is intended to save you time, improve your social media presence and increase your connections on the web by serving as the central hub for your university's social media.
