Social Media Services
Welcome to UF/IFAS Social Media Services
We are glad you are interested in social media. By the year 2023, it’s projected the number of social media users around the world will reach 3.43 billion, according to Statista.
Virtually dynamic platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and more allow you to expand your reach and touch audiences in innovative ways.
Before You Start
Social media platforms are a bit like committing to bringing home a new puppy. You have to feed it content daily, check back regularly to make sure there aren’t any accidents or issues you need to address, and give it lots of love to help it grow.
So, before you start a page, ask yourself if you really have the time to commit to starting a new account.
Please also review UF's social media guidelines.
