Customizing your page
Please consult the Missouri State University Identity Standards for visual identity guidelines and an appropriate Missouri State logo to use. Contact the office of publications regarding acceptable uses and variations of Missouri State logos.
For specific information on managing, customizing, and promoting your page in Facebook, please visit the Facebook Help Center.
You can re-purpose content from your website, blog, or other social media presences by utilizing third-party apps in Facebook. For more information on using apps in Facebook, please visit the Facebook Help Center.
Below are a few examples of third-party apps and how they can integrate with your content on other sites. Please follow the instructions provided with these third-party apps to set them up properly:
- RSS Graffiti - allows you to automatically import RSS feeds from your blog or website onto your Facebook page
- Flickr for Pages - allows you to bring your Flickr photos onto your Facebook page
- Twitter - allows your tweets to automatically pull onto your Facebook page
For University Units that do not have a broad mass audience but wish to dedicate resources to creating a smaller Facebook community presence, it is recommended that you create a Facebook group. Groups also have privacy settings so it can be set to global or restricted. The only downside to a group is that it requires interaction between users in order to stay current, and they rely around a community of users rather than a single administrator to maintain their relevance.
Any Facebook user can create an event and administer it themselves, whether that is through a page or group.
To create an event as a page administrator you should click on the "Event, Milestone +" link at the top of your status update box, then select Event. Users can RSVP to events, and the events feature is a good way to keep people aware of upcoming activities, lectures, games and so on.
