Speaking on the report Mr Rahul Jain, Director InnoServ Solutions Pvt.

He added that team InnoServ worked and analysed on the concept of adoption of Social Media in academics and presented a questionnaire to the participating colleges. 89% of the colleges said that they had social media presence while 76% said that they have been using social media since two years. Yet around 63% of the colleges still don’t have any documented policies and guidelines for social media. Astonishingly social media analytics has not been paid attention while crafting strategies.
Around 83% showcase their success stories and events on various social media platforms for promoting and branding. Institute owned websites are still the most preferred platforms for exchanging information like admission, placement, campus life of students, events. However, a surprising 30% still haven’t integrated social media to their websites. Conversely the tech savvy institutes have taken it to a level ahead and used social media platforms for CSR activities, discussions and debating various issues related to business, collaborative learning, etc. Facebook (98%) invariably is the most preferred social network followed by LinkedIn (78%), Twitter (64%), YouTube (60%) and Google + (52%). It’s interesting to note that YouTube is being used to showcase different student activities, lectures, conferences, interviews and events efficiently than ever before.
