It seems that SigmaChi.com has created a Facebook Application that allows you to update your SigmaChi.com profile information from Facebook. There was a hint of this when we did our podcast with Jim D’Amico (former Project Manager of SigmaChi.com) discussing the just launched SigmaChi.com and I am very glad to see the fraternity reaching out into social media.
The best part about this idea is that it makes it so easy to update your SigmaChi.com profile.
- Install the app and sign in using your SigmaChi.com login information.
- After that all you have to do is click on “update your members profile info”.
- Then update your info and it will save it to your SigmaChi.com profile.
Anytime you want to update your SigmaChi.com information, you can just go to the Facebook App and do it from there. I went ahead and did some testing and it works just fine. Here is a short video showing you how to install the app.
I am just guessing here, but I would think that probably 80% of all Sigs are on Facebook and this means that the fraternity just made it that much easier for 80% of the fraternity to update their information (which is always a good thing). Plus Sigma Chi controls this data that is getting updated, not Facebook. This is important for the fraternity, because this helps them stay up to date with us.
If you are reading this and haven’t downloaded the new SigmaChi.com Facebook Application, then go do it right now. I hope HQ continues down this road and starts branching out into other forms of social media. *cough* Twitter *cough*
You can hear more about what Sigma Chi could do when it comes to social media by checking a podcast we recorded with Brad Wellman discussing Sigma Chi & Social Media.
