Chat topics, dates and times for July 2013

We’re excited to be in our 2nd year of #AWCchat:  a one-hour, weekly online chat on Twitter where we discuss a variety of communications-related topics.

Nope, you do not have to be an AWC (Association for Women in Communications) member or a woman to participate.

The chat is held weekly, for one hour, 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. CST (Central Standard Time) on Thursdays. There will usually be a transcript on our Chirpstory channel if you can’t make it.

Here is a helpful post on how to participate in a Twitter chat, by Lisa Barone. Here’s the plan:

    • Thursday, July 4 – no chat (Fourth of July holiday)
    • Thursday, July 11 – All about Instagram, including the new video option
    • Thursday, July 18 –  What steps do you need to take to succeed as a freelance communicator?
    • Thursday, July 25 – The social business network that you’re ignoring: SlideShare

Please follow @AWCchat on Twitter, and tweet us any other topic ideas you have. We look forward to seeing you at one or all of the chat sessions.

Summary transcript for 19 April 2012 #AWCchat: social photography

Thanks to everyone who participated in our eighteenth #AWCChat on Twitter, on the topic of how to harness the communications power of social photography like Pinterest, Instagram and photos on Facebook.

Four questions were up for discussion:

1)   Social photography is visual communications. How can you integrate that into your overall communications strategy?

2)  Data shows that photo updates on Facebook get the most interaction. How can communicators take advantage of that?

3)   The Pinterest digital bulletin board service has taken off like crazy, but….are you worried about copyright issues?

4)   What are some tips you’ve learned for sharing photos from mobile devices? Do you use Instagram or other editing?

**  On Chirpstory – the summary transcript for 19 April chat on social photography.

The next chat is on Thursday, 26 April, and it’s an “App Party!”

We’ll talk about personalizing your communications technology with the best personal and professional apps, so be ready to tell us about your favorites.
