Connections building through Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter
Those with campus connections are increasingly using social media outlets to stay in touch with friends, tapping into the power of a shared common interest in BBC&S and instant communications with each other.
The networks are an efficient and valuable way for BBC&S to advance news related to campus, students and alumni, such as Kempton Athletic Center construction updates. They are also a powerful tool for users to simply stay in touch with each other and their common BBC&S experiences.
Photos of many BBC&S events are also posted frequently, with links added on the pages.
The largest connecting tool is Facebook, with more than 5,100 students, alumni, parents, and others on the BBC&S page through the world's largest online social network.
The BBC&S Facebook page has grown consistently. It provides frequent updates on events, gives easy access to important information, interesting items, fun "random poll questions," and other posts.

The newest addition to BBC&S social media is Google Plus, which integrates a range of social services offered by the most-popular internet search engine.
Launched in June 2011 with a test phase, Google Plus is now available to all individuals and businesses. It features "circles" for sharing items, "hangouts" for online chats, and a "stream" for users to quickly scan updates posted by connections.
Information on how to join Google Plus is here.
Check out the BBC&S area here.
Short updates are also posted on Twitter, the popular microblogging site.
In 2011, more than 300 million messages of up to 140 characters were "tweeted" through Twitter.
