Dr. Wagner uses the Social Media Marketing textbook and Mimic Social simulation in her teaching.

Social Media Marketing textbook

Mimic Social Simulation


Communication is key to keep students engaged in the simulation. There is so much information and so much they can learn with Mimic Social; however, students need tips on how to keep the consumer engaged with varying posts and how to read the insights. Once students understand the insights section they are off and running.  My students love Mimic Social!

Additionally, students are assigned a company to follow on 3 forms of social throughout the semester. Each week they search, on their assigned company’s social media, for an example of a concept that was learned in the chapter reading for the week. This assignment helps students tie real world social media with the simulation and provides ideas on what to post and when.

I love to read and to exercise. My 2 young boys are very active in sports and I love watching them play. We went to Disney last year and had an awesome time!

Congratulations, and thank you, Darci!
