Twitter, Facebook Part of Emergency Notification @ Pacific U
Campus Technology reports
Pacific University of Forest Grove, OR has integrated its Facebook and Twitter accounts into its Omnilert e2Campus emergency notification system. This allows the university to send e2Campus alerts (called Boxer Alerts at Pacific U) automatically and simultaneously to the school’s Facebook and Twitter accounts without the need for logging into Facebook and Twitter separately. This also means students who haven’t enrolled in the school’s official alert system may still get the alerts through the social networking and communication sites.
