SMU Social Media

Many colleges and universities now use social media to showcase accomplishments of students and faculty, promote academic programs, communicate important information to current students, and reach out to prospective students.

Samuel Merritt University (SMU) encourages use of social media networks as a method for communicating ideas and information, and as part of the educational mission of the University.  These networks can be valuable tools for communicating with the public, fellow students, faculty and employees.


Facebook currently has 845 million active users. In fact, Facebook accounts for one out of every five page views on the Internet worldwide, and more than 50 percent of the population in North America uses Facebook.
