How Many Indian Architecture And Design Schools Are On Social Media?

As of January 2016, there are 423 Indian Architecture Schools. Of them, there are less than 30 schools active on social media. 

Apart from cons like the Facebook data leaks, social media helps establish a presence with convenience-no personal websites needed; more people connect on social media; businesses happen on social media; and their visibility keeps increasing. 

Beyond this, social media sets new trends in lifestyle and design. All creative fields have many well curated, informative and inspiring profiles, which reflect on the user’s genuine discourse at what they do-photography, design, travel and what not.

Some among the limelight like Harvard GSD, Columbia GSAPP and AA London have engaging profiles with their architecture content. Facebook and Instagram posts and stories can cover lectures, exhibitions, studio happenings, workshops, design events, project reviews, book launches and many interesting such events to keep your feed inspiring. This also fosters people to attend, learn and share.

With so much potential to grow available on social media, how well are Indian Architecture Schools portraying their profiles? Mumbai Architecture schools and CEPT University, Ahmedabad, have the best profiles in the country. 

Many Indian colleges have only student run profiles for inter college confessions, gossips and memes, while the many others who’re active with architecture content could use more inspiration.

Columbia GSAPP has over 68k followers. BV Doshi’s brainchild, CEPT University, has the most following in India at over 12k. What could activate Indian Architecture schools and turn more heads towards them? Checkout the list of different handles below and get connecting. And if there are profiles missed here, let us know.
