Capilouto uses social media, blog to make online connection

In less than a month, President Dr. Eli Capilouto has expanded his accessibility by entering the world of social media. With 1,277 Twitter followers and 729 Facebook “likes” (as of Tuesday evening), Capilouto has blogged and tweeted in an effort to engage with the UK community.

Capilouto created his Twitter account and Facebook fan page on Aug. 2, and continues to post to his blog, which was launched in June.

In an Aug. 2 blog post, called “The Changing Nature of Communication,” Capilouto asked for student, faculty and staff participation and feedback.

“I am making myself open and expanding our dialogue through social media,” Capilouto said on the blog, “which can be similarly effective to my meetings across campus but with broader access and increased frequence in idea sharing.”
