If you know there is a possibility of your profile being viewed by an admissions officer, wouldn't you want to post content that brought positive attention to your profile? Are you involved in civic awareness activities? Post photos of yourself volunteering at events that help make positive change in other people's lives. Are you in the process of starting your own brand or blog? Post updates on your successes. Do you have fashion sketches or graphic design spreads you're proud of? Post them on Facebook. This gives you a chance to show admissions officers more of your talents that you weren't able to show in your portfolio and this opens up the opportunity of gaining support from friends and family. Social media has become a beautiful way to connect with people and for others to feel connected to you. You start to create sort of a fan base of individuals who love what you sketch and they will want to follow you and your successes. These actions all lead to positive movement and where there is positive energy, positive outcomes are presented to you.
Every university has official pages on Facebook--follow them. Stay up to date on current events and use this as the opportunity to communicate with the college. 'Like' their updates and comment on posts that interest you. Open the gateway of positive communication and it might just take your application a little further.
