Social Media

Social media is an interactive way for individuals to communicate through videos, blogs, pictures and messaging. Social media is a necessity when it comes to keeping our public updated on the events that are taking place around campus. FAMU’s official Facebook page, initiated in May 2008, has more than 25,000 users, making it the largest Facebook following for any historically black college or university. The page features up-to-date news on the institution; photo galleries showcasing campus activities, alumni and student achievements; and promotional videos.

One of the highlights of the Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages, is the "A Day in the Life…” reality series, which chronicles the average day of scholars, athletes, student leaders, band members and many others.
