All NKU-affiliated social media accounts must be owned by a faculty or staff member and registered with NKU's Office of Marketing & Communications. For security, social media accounts should be managed by at least two accountable employees. A student may be enlisted to assist in account management but should not have the highest level (admin) rights to the accounts.
In the case of a new hire or transfer of social media responsibilities, please provide an accurate list of usernames and passwords. It’s a good practice to ensure that the new person assuming those responsibilities is able to fully access each social media channel without trouble.
When a new person isn’t available to take over the accounts, designated back-up social media coordinators or direct supervisors should already have access to those accounts. This allows the transfer of power to go smoothly, and there won’t be concerns about being locked out of accounts.
Effective password management is crucial for both the security of the user and NKU. It is important to keep your password private and change it on a regular basis.
