Don’t miss out on Congress social media activities

Milena Stanoeva, Congress 2011 Team

Here at the Federation, we know that Congress generates a lot of discussion in the blogosphere and the twitterverse. Recognizing that delegates are increasingly active on social media platforms, we have integrated user-generated content across the board at Congress 2011.

Here are a few ways for delegates who are plugged in to better Experience Congress:

Congress Social Media Meet-up: This year, Congress is hosting its first-ever networking cocktail for delegates who are active on social media platforms. Join us on May 29, from 5-7pm at Harriet Irving Library, room 111 to meet other bloggers and share your experiences and thoughts on social media. This event is free and open to all. Snacks and drinks will be provided. Email [email protected] for more information or to RSVP. You can also RSVP to our Facebook event page.

Twitter: Use the hashtag #congress11 to tweet your Congress-related thoughts, experiences and comments. Be on the lookout for the live Twitter Walls around campus. And don’t forget to follow us at @fedcan for news and information on Congress and other Federation-related activities.

Mobile App: Download the Congress2011 app for Twitter updates, news and daily event information. A Blackberry version will be coming soon.
