In this presentation we will be talking about how we as a University can use Social Media and Networking Technologies to stay

connected with our students. We will also discuss how this will help to improve our school community. We will go over the social media networks that we can use, how we can accomplish school goals, and the advantages and disadvantages of social networking. Our discussion will include information about the system development life cycle and how the University can bring social networking to life with the system development cycle.

Social networking can be useful to the students and the colleges or universities because of the integration of student participation and student awareness of activities and goals. Privacy and confidentiality, the major issues of social networking integration, need to be addressed and fixed in order for the integration to work properly. Awareness and implementation of the Systems Development Life Cycle is a must. (2014). Mission Statement. Retrieved from Lederer, K. (2012). Pros and Cons of Social Media in the Classroom.
