Leiden University is keen to make use of the opportunities offered by social media. The power of social media lies in the personal approach and many departments use social media to stay in touch with their audience, students and staff.
If you wish to be active on social media and have no idea where to start, or if you are already active and have questions or would like to help others, the Leiden University Social Media Facebook group is a closed group exclusively for Leiden University staff members who are or wish to be active on social media. You can visit the group to ask questions or share your experiences. To become a member, you need to have a Facebook account.
