WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

College students, faculty, and staff weighed in on social media on Monday at Midwestern State University. 

The Department of Mass Communication and Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management sponsored the day-long Social Media Day. 

Members of the community joined attendees for discussions about how to use the latest social media responsibly. 

"I think a lot of students engage in their social media of the day. Maybe its Snapchat or whatever but how can it further your career? How can it help you get a better job and how can you do it responsibly? We hear about all the stories of people getting in trouble with social media and there is a dark side to social media as well and we want to teach them how they can do this responsibly," Mass Communication Professor, Bradley Wilson said. 

The free event was on a come and go basis so students and faculty could attend when their schedules allowed.

It's an event that organizers plan to continue in the future.
