Our social media channels present the diverse voices that make London Metropolitan University unique. It is important that all areas of the University present their social media identity in a way that is consistent so that our audiences associate content with London Met.
The information here applies to London Met organisational accounts only, not the personal accounts of staff members. Some parts of the University's Social Media Policy do apply to personal accounts.
