Getting Your Message Across - SOCIAL MEDIA - the new revolution

Scary? Helpful? Waste of time? Useful? Hard to handle? Easy to use? Do we have to? What's in it for Rotary?

Whatever your answers, one thing is certain: as a means of communication it can no longer be ignored. Come along to the Social Media workshop to have your questions answered, share your knowledge and experiences with others on:

Saturday 16 February 9.30am-12.30pm

Royal Grammar School, Amersham Road, High Wycombe HP13 6QT

The latest in our series of popular Getting Your Message Across workshops with an emphasis on discussion and ‘hands on’ learning, so the ability to meet specific needs will be flexible. If time allows other issues will be addressed.

A brief introduction to Getting your Message Across in the broader sense will be followed by:

Keynote Speaker: Gwen Powell (Burnham Beeches) – Facebook and Twitter

As with all our workshops this will be a sharing of experience for the benefit of Rotary, our clubs and district. We welcome the ‘just curious’, complete novices, new users anxious to find out more and experts willing to share good practice.

  • 4. 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
  • 5. 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
  • 6. 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
