  • Wiki says: v  “Social media employ web- and mobile-based technologies to support interactive dialogue and introduce substantial and pervasive changes to communication between organisations, communities, and individuals.” v  “Social media are social software which mediate human communication.” v  “In the year 2012, social media became one of the most powerful sources for news updates through platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.”Rotary International District 1090 – Workshop on Social Media – February 2013
  • 1.  High-impact and low-cost (free!) way to promote your club and speak to your community. 2.  You can: ²  Publish club information ²  Advertise events ²  Create discussion and gather feedback ²  Build your club’s “brand” 3.

  • RIBI says: ü  all social networking sites have suitable account settings which can be set to share a minimum of information even with friends and followers that are known extremely well to the account holder ü  if an individual, Club or District is signing up to some accounts they should be aware that the default security setting is not necessarily the most secure and therefore may need to be adjusted to meet the individual’s needs ü  The rule of thumb is not to share information that you wouldn’t share with someone if you were having a real conversation.Rotary International District 1090 – Workshop on Social Media – February 2013
  • Rotarians on Social Networks Fellowship (ROSNF) says: 1.  General Guidelines ~ be respectful ~ keep on topic ~ don’t spam ~ observe copyright & common courtesy ~ be accurate & correct mistakes 2. Guidelines for posting as an individual ~ review privacy settings ~ be careful what you share ~ be aware of liability ~ protect your privacy 3. Guidelines for club and district presences ~ authority to post officially ~ positive & transparent ~ liking & following implications ~ observe Rotary’s PoliciesRotary International District 1090 – Workshop on Social Media – February 2013
  • RIBI says:1. Go online before you start your own social media page and see what other clubs and organisations are doing2. Decide which platforms you are going to utilise – FB, Twitter, YouTube3. Look professional & designate moderators4. Update your page regularly (but not too often)5. Follow news and media stories and look for opportunities to post positive Rotary related comments.6. Follow other Rotary related pages and people such as the President’s page, RIBI, Rotary International etc.7. Remember – social media allows for an immediate PR message, therefore ensure consideration is given to any postings being made with a Rotary message and how it may reflect the individual, the Club, the District or the organisation as a whole8. Be safe, but don’t be afraid! Rotary International District 1090 – Workshop on Social Media – February 2013
