Mergel invites guest speakers for Social Media class

Social Media Class.jpgProfessor Ines Mergel invites two great guest speakers in PAIA’s Social Media class today: The Public Information Officer of the NY State Police, Trooper Jack Keller and his assistant. NY State Police has the largest following on Facebook among all comparable law enforcement agencies with 195K followers and talked with the students about social media tactics police uses during the most recent prison breaks, the image of the police in the public, and how they are using social media to inform and educate the public. They also talked about their most popular posts - no it’s not cats on the Internet: every K-9 unit dog is named after a fallen trooper and every post about a dog receives thousands of likes, comments, and direct donations. 11/11/15
