Summary This thesis project consists of social student media best practices in a downloadable PDF handbook located at To create the handbook, an online survey was conducted of California community college instructors to determine what social media curriculum, if any, was being taught, and how journalism students responded to social media, including interest level in learning social media tools. Interviews were conducted to further identify what type of instruction was needed for a basic social media outline for student media. The findings of the survey and interviews showed that a very basic lesson plan of how to use Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube would be most beneficial, and led to the creation of the PDF Handbook located at This handbook is easily accessible and can be printed for reference, giving those associated with student media a simple and comprehensive "get started" guide for success with social media.
