2016 Year in Review OU Web Communications, Marketing & New media

OU Social Media

We officially kicked off the OU Snapchat account with student takeovers. Every day an OU student, faculty, staff, or alumnus showed off their lives to fellow Sooners and fans.

120 Snapchat takeovers & 3,300 views

OU Social Media

Instagram is the best way to reach current & prospective students.

OU Instagram account grew by 30,218 followers to 65,218.

OU Social Media

Twitter followers increased by 26,169 to 121,169 followers.

Facebook continues to be our largest audience and tends to mostly target parents, alumni, and fans. Heated debate can easily break out on a Facebook post as much as as joyous replies after a Sooner Football win.

Facebook fans increased by 16,675 to 371,672 total fans.
