MUST READ SOCIAL MEDIA NEWS….

September 2012

Social media is a phrase being tossed around a lot these days, but it can sometimes be difficult to answer the question of what is social media.

What is Social Media?   The best way to define social media is to break it down. Media is an instrument on communication, like a newspaper or a radio, so social media would be a social instrument of communication.

So, in order to figure out the how, I’d advise starting with the items below:

NCAA and Social Media

Because of social media like Facebook and Twitter, fans have unprecedented access to the prospects their schools are recruiting. But in many cases, these interactions can constitute NCAA secondary violations when initiated by “representatives of the institution’s athletic interests,” otherwise known as boosters.
Just recently, former Washington All-American Lawyer Milloy might have committed such a violation when he contacted Shaq Thompson on Twitter and wrote that Thompson would “look nice in Purple & Gold,” Washington’s colors.

Thompson, the No. 16 in the ESPNU 150 and the nation’s No. 3 safety, is committed to Cal but is still considering the Huskies.

“The institutions are responsible for monitoring the contact between boosters and prospective student athletes,” said Charnele Kemper, the NCAA’s associate director of academic and membership affairs.

But for university compliance departments, this can be a meticulous, time-consuming undertaking. Even for those athletic departments with enormous resources and large compliance staffs.
