Social media can help students get into college. Juniors and seniors who are building their college lists should follow colleges they are interested in on social media, including Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and others. Many colleges admit to looking at a student's social media, so they should make sure there are only posts that compliment the student. They should google their name to see what comes up as this is what colleges will see. They should also have appropriate handles, a professional profile picture and untag or unfriend anyone who may compromise their chances of getting into the college of their dreams. They should make videos of anything they do that may showcase their talents. Lastly, they should be honest in all their posts. The truth has a way of coming out in the end.
