Boosted posts

Boosted posts (social media ads) are a cost-effective way to reach people who may be interested in your event, scholarship, course, survey or opportunity.

Can you help me create a boosted post?

If your event has significant strategic value to the university community, contact the social media team at for assistance. For example:

  • Promoting a new program on behalf of a faculty or department
  • Campus-wide events like Ideafest

Due to very high demand, we are not able to create boosted posts on UVic social media accounts for everyone, but we can help you to create your own boosted post.

How do I create my own boosted post?

We suggest you start with Facebook, as it is the most popular social networking site in North America and its ad manager is relatively easy to use.

Please contact UVic's social media team at for help.
