24 Things You Can Do with Social Media to Help Get Into College by Gina Carroll

The Internet has opened up a whole new approach to finding the best match between college-bound students and the school of their choice. Once a matter of slogging through stacks of college publications or depending on word of mouth, today zeroing in on the right college or university has become as simple as using the social media made available by the Web. In 24 Things You Can Do with Social Media to Help Get into College, Gina Carroll provides a roadmap to the perfect match between student and school, giving prospective students the fastest route to the school best able to meet their goals. Carroll shows “digital natives” how to:

• use Facebook and other Web sites to put your best self forward
• clean up and safeguard personal blog information to eliminate unflattering posts from friends
• integrate your media to help admissions personnel learn why you are an ideal candidate for their school
• use blogging to help close the deal with your soul-mate school
• find the dollars needed to make the school of your choice possible
