I am not on Cadet advisory council or color-guard: I am simply a C/TSGT on staff that was thinking of making a squadron instagram since our squadron doesn't currently have one...
1) Can I simply just make one and get the squadron to join?
2) Who should I run the idea by if I were to ask permission?
3) How many cadets can run it?
4) Do I have to ask permission?
Whats the purpose? Are most of the Cadets already on Instagram? If so, are they all following each other? If so, then everyone is probably already sharing fun photos of events with each other.
For marketing the Squadron to possible recruits, currently the website and Facebook page are easier to 'push' to outside prospects. I would just continue to use Instagram and Snapchat for fun, as it probably is already.
