Wondering how to make the most of social media while at LIANZA 2019 Conference?
Never fear, you can follow the tips on this handy cheat sheet!
We encourage people to use conference hashtags so others can follow what’s happening on social media and connect with others.
You can use these on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
#LIANZA19 – use this for all conference tweets
#LibraryKnowledge #MafanaWarmth #OfaLove #MalieHumour – use these as appropriate.
If you are making multiple tweets from one conference presentation you can create a ‘thread’ of tweets by replying to each of your previous tweets. This means people can click on ‘show this thread’ and then read all the tweets in chronological order. We will also be able to ‘unroll’ the threads using https://twitter.com/threadreaderapp and use them a bit like blog posts summarising parts of the conference.
Conference is a great time to meet people in real life that you follow on social media. Definitely go and say hello to people and create connections. The LIANZA Conference Code of Conduct is an easy way to make sure you keep networking productive and fun.
