Fourteen thousand #Brockcoop mentions in five days.
That’s how many social media hits there would be if each of Brock’s 2,800 Co-op students hashtagged #Brockcoop once a day.
Will that be enough tweets to break Twitter? Probably not, but it would certainly be enough to raise national awareness about Brock’s successful co-op program.
That’s the goal of Brock’s Co-op Programs Office.
It is spearheading Brock’s social media participation in National Co-op Week, which is organized by the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education (CAFCE), which runs from March 17-21.
Cindy Dunne, director of Co-op Programs, wants Brock co-op students, staff, faculty and employers to share their photos, thoughts and tips about the co-op experience on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn. Posts should be tagged with #Brockcoop and #coopweek. She hopes to have the highest number of social media mentions on Friday, March 21 during the “Social Media, Surgite!” day.
