Campus Social Media Security

Campuses and students expect tools that social networking services, provide; Like Chat, Message Boards, Sharing Pictures, and Sharing Files. Campuses and schools like the idea of campus social media security, however they don’t want to have to compromise anyone’s privacy, safety or security to get it done. Schools in order to trust communication need to assure privacy, authentication, data, and have auditable communications so the school can protect it’s reputation, students, parents, faculty and staff. These safe guards can never and will never be available with public open social media solutions. So, what can be done?

What social networking services are they using on campus?

Facebook and YouTube dominate this landscape, as notable majorities of U.S. adults use each of these sites. At the same time, younger Americans (especially those ages 18 to 24) stand out for embracing a variety of platforms and using them frequently. Some 78% of 18- to 24-year-olds use Snapchat, and a sizeable majority of these users (71%) visit the platform multiple times per day. Similarly, 71% of Americans in this age group now use Instagram and close to half (45%) are Twitter users. (according to the Pew Report).

What are campuses using for communication and campus social media security?

Many campuses use learning management systems, which are limited in their embrace of communication and don’t really provide any communication systems outside of the course. So, in order to reach students, campuses, instructors and administrators feel like they are forced to reach out to students on open, unsecure social networking/media platforms or go without.

So, what is the harm of the school embracing open public social media?

So, what is the harm in allowing students and teachers to communicate via Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat or Instagram? Students do it all day, why not allow teachers isn’t the same thing? No.

Why not try offer one platform of campus social media security?

Here are some issues to consider:

1Social media companies make their money by allowing 3rd parties to access personal private information. So, users’ privacy and chats are not assured at all.

2School’s don’t own the data nor can they access it, so that’s a big problem in terms of risk, liability and litigation.

3There is no way to truly authenticate a user on a social media chat session.

4If the school doesn’t own the data, the authentication, and cannot truly access it, who can you hold accountable for a communication that was inappropriate, when the user can simply say: “it was not me, that is not the correct information.”

5If the school does own the data, they can monitor the communication infrastructure so that they can manage risk, liability, negligence, and litigation risk.

If a school creates its own campus social media security solution?

  • School could authenticate everyone.
  • Own the data.
  • Assure privacy.
  • Assure security.
  • Audit communications.
  • Provide actual valuable solutions by having a solution that provides not only chat but:
    1. User, Group and Course Message Boards
    2. Messaging (inbox/outbox)
    3. File Sharing
    4. Picture Sharing
    5. Calendar Sharing
    6. Location Sharing

What are you saying? School-based campus social media security system provided the correct way could actually be useful?
