Govt. to Use Social Media Platforms To Ensure Better Relations With Students

To promote positivity and create a better relationship between the Government, many Universities and other educational institutions are busy in establishing different social media cells that will be working towards bridging the students and the Ministry of Human Resource Development.

Through this gargantuan social media networking, the MHRD is aiming at bringing in positivity between the Government and the students. Keeping this in mind, the sources state that the different Vice-Chancellors of the educational institutions and the Universities have been directed to appoint a senior faculty member in the position of a Social Media Champion (SMC). The job of the SMC is to connect with the student on the three most prominent social media platforms, i.e. Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Along with connecting with the students, the SMC will be expected to post at least one positive story or event in a week to spread positivity amongst the students.

The Ministry of Human Resource Development chose Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as the preferred social media platforms where all the Universities and students will connect with the MHRD. The expectation is that the SMCs will be retweeting or reposting the positive messages and posts that take place in educational institutions across the country. This will ensure better awareness among the students moving forward.
