This social hub is for the entire New Paltz community! Whether you are launching a club or organization, getting ready for the big game, teaching a class in Minnewaska, or attending Alumni Reunion, our New Paltz Social Hub lets you tell the New Paltz story! Our platform allows you to easily share photos or videos using (Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook). Be sure you tag your post with #NPsocial and check this social hub daily to see what's going on around campus.
Thinking about starting an official on campus social media account?
We welcome the creation of new accounts on campus, but ask members of our community to first fill out the Social Media Registration Form. This form helps begin the process of becoming an official account that is highlighted on our directory page. We have established a university-wide standard for the use, creation, and management of official branded social media accounts.
Don't see your posts on the Social Media Hub?
Check your privacy settings within the app and consider being public. Think of your account as a personal brand or your digital resume. When you graduate, your Instagram could actually help you land a great job in NYC!
Not seeing your Facebook post? Facebook supports hashtags internally, they have yet to release full support in their developer API -- meaning third parties (like #NPsocial) don't benefit from their hashtag search indexing.
Don't see your Flyer to promote your big event? We didn't build this hub to spam our viewers. If you have a large event coming up post amazing images not a full page of just text. If your event looks like fun people will show up!
