Bios and descriptions
BIO AND DESCRIPTION GUIDELINES
Aside from your social media avatar and account name, your bio is the next most important feature of your profile. A bio is your introduction to prospective followers and previews the type of content viewers should expect. Bios should be concise but include information on your mission, accomplishments and highlights. We recommend including one bio link to the university.
Your Facebook “About” Section should include the OSU official mission statement and a short bio limited to 155 characters. Facebook removed certain page sections including Mission, Company Overview, Biography, Affiliation and Personal Interests as of August 2019. Migrate all relevant information to your “About” and “Story” sections. The contact information field should offer information to contact the university or your department.
Twitter bios must be 160 characters or less. Use relevant tags and hashtags specific to your department or industry. Examples of hashtags can be #GoPokes, #okstate, #AmericasBrightestOrange and #LoyalandTrue.
Official university hashtags can be found at social.okstate.edu.
Instagram bios must be 150 words or less. Utilize relevant emojis and hashtags, and drive traffic with a link to the university homepage.
Your LinkedIn company page can be 200 characters min and 1,500 max and should include information on what your department does, provides and stands for. Include information in the company details section, including a link to your department’s homepage, location and specialties. List awards, accolades and key services.
