Survey of Use of Facebook in Higher Education Marketing

Feb 2016| PRG119A| Primary Research Group

Report Highlights

The study looks closely at how North American colleges are using both paid advertising and general Facebook marketing in attracting new students and fortifying relationships with alumni. The study helps its readers to answer questions such as: how much are colleges spending on their paid Facebook advertising? How have colleges felt about their paid advertising experience on Facebook? How much staff time do they spend on Facebook in their college marketing efforts? How do they view the efficacy of Facebook compared to alternatives such as YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and other marketing venues. What kinds of content are colleges distributing through their Facebook pages? How do they evaluate content for inclusion? How do colleges harmonize their main Facebook page with other campus Facebook pages?
