    • What is social media?

    • Part Two: Strategies
      Putting tools to action!
    • Choosing your platform
      Which platform will best communicate your message? This depends a lot on what you are trying to say, but it also depends on your preference. Think about how you communicate best. Through writing? Through art? What will be most effective for getting your message across?
    • Three Important Tips
      Sheldon Levine, Community Manager at social media strategy firm Sysomos Inc., says that using social media for social change comes down to these three key tips:
      Create content that stirs emotion;
      Always have a call to action;
      Create a sense of community.
    • Stirring Emotion
      Be:
      • Honest in your communication
      • Personal in explaining why the issue is important to you
      • Clear in your message
    • Call to Action
      Encourage interaction and feedback through petitions, questions, surveys, and comment boards. Often, this can be as simple as asking the question: “What do you think about this issue?”
    • Sense of Community
      Ways to create community:
      • Exchangeinformation
      • Get to know your audience
      • Most importantly: show others you’re listening to what they have to say! 
    • The End!
