Joining the Online Chat Groups for Societies is optional

Social Media

Some societies also use different social media platforms to stay in touch. 

  • Such as Facebook or WhatsApp etc. 
  • They may need to stay in touch more regularly or quickly, for example, if they are working on a project or planning an event.

  • Students who sign up to other social media platforms for a society, who have not joined their society as a member through the Beds SU website are not recognised society members.
