Missouri State Athletics Expands Social Media Presence

Aug 16, 2013

With a new school year on the horizon, Missouri State University Athletics is proud to announce an expanded social media push for the upcoming sports season.

With more comprehensive individual sport Twitter accounts, fans will have the opportunity to connect with their favorite MSU teams with in-game updates, behind-the-scenes photos, news feeds and much more. The @MissouriStBears Twitter account will continue to serve as the primary Athletics account with select updates from the individual sport accounts as well as general Athletics news.

The Bears Facebook page (MissouriStBears), surpassed 16,000 followers earlier this month and will continue to give fans great access to Missouri State sports. The new social media strategy will include a substantial increase in photos showcased on the Facebook pages, providing fans with exclusive access to coaches and student-athletes.

A Missouri State Pinterest account (MissouriStBears) will also allow fans to share their favorite Bears boards and pins for the first time. Additional social media pages will also be unveiled throughout the year as part of the social media expansion initiative.

The new Missouri State social media directory is available on, so join the conversation and include the #MSUBears to participate in the discussion.
