  • ● The O.G. of temporary social media content

    ● A platform that skews “younger”

    ● Notoriously tricky for first-timers to use (exclusive)

    ● Fewer users than Instagram—but many Snapchat users aren’t on Instagram!

    What is Snapchat?

  • ...What about Instagram Stories?

    ● Launched in August 2016 -- “a clone of Snapchat stories.”

    ● Instagram managed to beat Snapchat at its own game.

    ● Instagram gives you both the feed and the Stories, all in one place.

    ● Snapchat: What went wrong?

    ○ Lack of data, marketing and searchability is a big pain point on Snapchat.

    ● 800 million Instagram users; 166 Million Snapchat users.

    ● Main users of Snapchat are teenagers and 18-24 year olds.

  • Past Snaps and Stories

  • SustainableUMD Instagram Stories

    ● Good interaction with audience on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter but……..Looking for ways to incorporate student interns as admins

    ● Scared of SnapChat (?): not really but also not crazy about adding another platform (more work with same amount of resources)

    ● Desire to do more on Instagram: amazing response & interaction● INSTAGRAM STORIES TO THE RESCUE!!!● Increased student involvement, audience interaction, provides the

    best feature on SnapChat and allows for more “outside of the box” postings!

  • STAMP Snaps and Instagram Stories● Were big Snapchat users in the past—but have now given it up in favor of Instagram

    Stories● One plus of Snapchat: filters!● Stories are great for a “less curated” experience● Ideal for time-sensitive or “in the moment” messaging—especially since the Instagram

    feed stopped being chronological

  • UMD Office of Community Engagement (OCE)

    ● Content focuses on connecting campus and wider community. ● Promoting campus and community events, volunteer opportunities, OCE signature

    programs. ○ Highlighting new features College Park, supporting departments across UMD.

    ● Farewell, Snapchat. ● Prioritize creating long Instagram Stories that walk you through an event

    -- “digital storytelling”. ● Delegate IG Stories to our student interns to capture student perspective.
