Social Media Team

LSE students, alumni and academics are deeply engaged in understanding and experiencing the social, economic and political issues they choose to focus on, with the aim to facilitate betterment for society beyond the academy.

LSE uses social media to further facilitate such engagement, to reach and engage new and current audiences, to raise our profile globally, to highlight the work of our academics and create interest in the research, activities and life of the LSE community.

Social Media Guidelines and Best Practice Toolkit for LSE departmental and divisional staff

Guidelines on effective channel use, appropriate visual identity, and how to respond to online incidents are available for LSE departments. A Best Practice Toolkit, updated monthly, is also available to enhance your visibility in a busy social media space, and to assist you in responding to online incidents. Contact the  Social Media team for your copy of the Guidelines and access to the Toolkit.

Sign up for the weekly LSE social media mailout for staff

The Social Media Mailout provides a variety of platform-specific suggested content for the many social media channels run by LSE staff.  The mailout also includes a Tip of the Week to promote best practice across the School. To sign up to the mailout or to contribute content to the mailout, contact the Social Media team.

LSE Impact Blog

The LSE Impact Blog is a hub for researchers, administrative staff, librarians, students, think tanks, government, and anyone else interested in maximising the impact of academic work in the social sciences and other disciplines. The blog aims to encourage debate, share best practice and keep the impact community up to date with news, events and the latest research.

LSE Review of Books

LSE Review of Books publishes daily reviews of academic books across the social sciences. The blog’s aim is to facilitate the sharing and exchange of knowledge between experts within and outside of the academy, and to open up academic research to increase its impact. We do this by encouraging public engagement with the social sciences through their best written and most accessible products: books.
