Telling MU Extension’s story, one photo at a time

On Aug. 3, MU Extension launched a social media campaign called MU Extension 101. The purpose is to expand our online audience by showing the diverse ways we affect people’s lives. Every Monday and Thursday, we will post a new picture on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. Visit to learn more.

Ways you can get involved:

  • Help us spread the message by sharing, retweeting, pinning and liking the posts on the extension accounts on your personal pages.
  • If you have an engaging picture that helps tell the extension story (and you have the proper photo release), please send it to with a brief description and how the picture connects to an extension program, service or publication. Photos should be high-resolution.
