In October 2013 Facebook reported 1.19 billion people from across the world had signed up with the social media giant. If you looked at that number in terms of population, it would make Facebook the third largest country in the world. Given the size of the audience, it’s easy to see why we integrate Facebook into our communications program as a tool to share our work and challenge nuclear power while promoting clean energy. A big part of getting our message out on Facebook involves you, our supporters. In case you didn’t know how important you are, we decided to team up with the Idaho Sierra Club to offer a free workshop on how to get started with Facebook and Twitter, the two largest social media platforms, and show you how you can use them to support the organizations that matter to you.
If you’re a super Slick-Vic with social media, you are more than welcome to come, but this workshop is really intended for the beginner who doesn’t know where to start with social media or someone who simply wants to find a way to support the Snake River Alliance without spending a dime. We will cover how to create a Facebook and Twitter account, the differences and similarities of each platform, how to create content such as “memes” to get messages out in a way that will attract attention, and much more. We will also have a Q&A session at the end. Accordingly, we would like to hear what questions you may already have ahead of time so we can work the answers into our presentation. You can do so by sending your questions to [email protected].
This free workshop will take place on Thursday, February 6, at 6 pm. The workshop will take place in the conference room at the Boise Snake River Alliance office on the 3rd floor of the Eagles Building (223 N 6th St, Boise, ID 83702). If you plan on attending or have questions, please email Jonnathan Wight at [email protected] so we can get an idea of how many people are planning to attend. This will help us choose a location that will have enough space for everyone. We look forward to seeing you there!
