Yes. I know that this may be my LONGEST blog post title ever. I created it for one reason. It is the equation which will help me move my research forward for my dissertation.
You may recall a previous request for this from an earlier blog post: Gathering #SocialMedia Guidelines from #HigherEd. So, basically what I’m saying is…
I NEED YOUR HELP! => Submit Your Social Media Guidance Please!
My dissertation research methodology (good ol’ Chapter 3) will involve text mining analysis for reviewing all these many social media guidelines (policies, strategies, beliefs, regulations, etc. included) I am gathering right now. The caveat for this type of research is – I need to build a large enough database of documents to examine and evaluate. BONUS: After collecting all of these documents, I will share this Social Media Guidance database AND my research findings for you here: http://socialmediaguidance.wordpress.com/
As of today (4:30 pm CT), I have collected approximately 176 Social Media Guidance documents from 13 different countries. Hoo-ray!
Check to see if your institution is listed below, and if it is not – please SEARCH YOUR COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY WEBSITE to see if you might just happen to have social media guidelines, a policy, a directory, and/or anything that might be related to social media. Thank you!

I don’t go to school at Vanderbilt anymore – but they do have a social media policy – http://www.mc.vanderbilt.edu/root/vumc.php?site=socialmediatoolkit&doc=26923
I didn’t feel right entering it on your form since I’m not an official Vandy representative.
oops – this one was from the medical center…
I think I have that one, but I appreciate the contribution. If it’s available and published on their website, then it would be perfect for my study. I appreciate it!
Hey Laura, here’s one from Vanderbilt – http://web.vanderbilt.edu/resources/social-media-handbook/
