Social Media for International Recruitment

Hello all, I've been asked to put a presentation together for an international recruiters conference that will be held on our campus. They'd like me to talk about "social media." Since this is my only parameter, I'd like to at least tailor the presentation to their purposes and make the case for using social media in international recruitment efforts. Sadly, this is not something that is done strategically on our own campus.

Glad I can be of help. FYI - we started this site almost 3 years ago and it continues to grow. We now have over 3,400 members from 60 countries. I'm hoping this continues to be an active community for higher ed web professionals.

"Yep, I got the same messages. Some of our sites use SSL and we've been talking about migrating all the rest our sites for a while now. I suspect we will be doing it rather than just talking about it sooner rather than later now. :\"

Should we migrate to https?

I recently got a notice from Google that in October 2017 Chrome V62 with show the warning "NOT SECURE" on all our web pages we have a input field for search. Since on most of our pages there is nothing that would require secure information I've never felt the need for HTTPS. Our class registration pages are secure but not the general information pages.
