About the Group

The University’s social media group was formed in 2013 to give a voice to SM users across the University and to bring interested parties together to discuss how we’re taking SM use forward.

What started as a small group of enthusiasts has grown to a sprawling online Slack community where people can seek advice, ask for retweets and share best practice. We also meet roughly six times a year and we’ve even been known to go out for cake!


If you’d like to join the group just email Mike Ewen (michael.ewen@hull.ac.uk) and we’ll add you to the mailing list and our Slack community.
