Unit Websites and Social Media

Posted by Darlene Scheffler Thursday, June 1, 2017 9:56:00 AM

The Sam Houston Area Council is focusing on leveraging the power of communications through websites and on social media through Facebook.  The more Scouters share and repost, the more powerful our marketing can be.

Share your unit social media sites

While we are currently focused on Facebook, we have plans to expand to other types of social media. 

We are compiling a list of unit social media sites so we can work together to spread the word about Scouting by tagging, liking commenting and sharing each other posts. 

Would you like your unit website to be listed on your district website?  If so, please complete our social media survey.

Help spread the word about Scouting on Facebook


Like Us.



Click, like, comment, and share our posts. 


Mention the council in your posts. 

Type "@Sam Houston Area Council" and then select the council from the list that appears.


Share Memories.

Share your Scouting memories with us by sending photos and videos.  You can post them on our wall or send them to us as a message. You may just see them posted on our wall.


Invite Friends.

Invite your Scouting friends to Like our page. 


Select 'Post in News Feed'.

Select the ‘Post in News Feed’ option on the ‘Liked’ button. 


Studies show that page posts typically reach a small amount of their total followers. Facebook uses algorithms to determine which stories appear in a user’s Newsfeed. Just liking a page doesn’t guarantee that it will show up in your feed. Engaging (i.e., clicking, liking, commenting, tagging, and sharing) with a page’s content makes it more likely that you’ll see it.
