Fairfield University’s social media efforts earn place on national list

Fairfield University has been named one of “The 50 Most Popular American Universities on Instagram” according to Nitrogram, a social media tracking and analytics platform.

According to a posting earlier this week, Fairfield University joins a number of colleges and universities, including Boston College, Yale, Harvard, Duke, Stanford, Columbia and George Washington University, in Nitrogram’s “overview of our 50 best finds” using Instagram, the social media photo and video sharing service.

“We are very pleased about making this list and being recognized among other prestigious universities,” said Nikki Pellows, social media coordinator at Fairfield University. “It shows that our social media efforts are getting noticed.”

Fairfield University started using Instagram in November 2012, and now has several hundred online photos posted in its account. They are organized by month of posting and often include contributed pictures of campus activities, landscape photographs and historic, archival events. There has been a constant increase in Fairfield University’s Instagram popularity, and it now includes more than 1,000 followers.

Fairfield University uses its Instagram account frequently, typically posting a few times a week.

“When people tag us (@FairfieldU) in their photos, we can share some of our favorites in our account,” Pellows said. “People may also comment under posts.”
