Gavin T. Kelly is Louisiana Tech’s Social Media Strategist in University Communications, so he knows a thing or three about social media. These are the best platforms according to our Resident Pro.

  1. Instagram: Love the visual aspect of it, and the general attention span of the platform is short and sweet.
  2. Twitter: Quick info, very humorous if you’re following the right people. I go on Twitter to laugh and get sports updates. Peer-to-peer interaction is good stuff on Twitter.
  3. YouTube: I have learned, lived, and laughed more through YouTube than any other platform. YT makes creators out of everybody. Sometimes that’s a good thing.
  4. TikTok: I was hesitant to get on board, but I’ve wasted countless hours scrolling through TikTok content.
  5. Snapchat: Definitely more useful as peer-to-peer than a marketing platform, but Snapchat is a staple of my everyday affairs on my personal social media.
