Doing Advocacy Through Social Media - Facebook Session - Follow-up and notes

On June 23rd, 2015, I had the pleasure of conducting a workshop on how to use Facebook to post and read statuses, including those with hashtags. If you have any questions following this workshop, please feel free to leave a comment here.

A document has been produced containing detailed notes from the workshop. While these notes are detailed, they do not necessarily cover all topics discussed.

Last Day of Campaign... (#IAmYourCustomer)

As we move into the last day of the campaign, you still have time to do your part and make a difference.

It is time to get involved and change the story about who we are. If you do not want others advocating on our behalf then it is up to all of us to advocate on matters of importance, such as access to vital information to support decision making.

Go to our home page and you will find supporting documentation there for the 'I Am Your Customer' and join us in making good things happen: http://www.blindcanadians.ca/iamyourcustomer

Accessible communication is critical to enabling independence, and full participation in life.

Join Us for a Workshop on Doing Advocacy through Social Media! (June 23, 2015)

Social media is a powerful tool – It provides individuals just like you with a platform to share your views and your voice with millions of readers instantaneously. Suddenly, we are all connected with just the click of a button. The possibilities for advocacy and public education efforts are endless! But how can we use social media platforms responsibly, appropriately, and independently? How can we use social media to educate through positive and important dialogue?

Rocking in the Digital Age! (#IAmYourCustomer)

First, please forgive me for not being more present on our members list over the last month. Following our AGM, our agendas were very full with deadlines on strategic planning, consultations, presentations, interviews, meetings, and recovering from the hectic pace that is a hallmark of a really good conference. Halifax was a terrific venue and the hospitality of our Maritime friends made it a truly enjoyable and memorable event!

It would appear that my time working on issues and opportunities has turned into mostly a full time job. I am sure glad that I retired to enjoy my seniority!
