Wikimania - Social media workshop Wednesday at 1900
Will you be at Wikimania on Wednesday evening? Then join us for the first ever Social Media “One-Night Stand” workshop session with Andrew Lih and Sree Sreenivasan from 1900 to 2030. All are invited, even if you’re not signed up for pre-conference, and this will be especially useful for chapters and user group leaders, or anyone interested in outreach.
How might we more effectively use social media to further Wikimedia’s mission globally and locally?
Join this hands-on workshop with social media guru Sree Sreenivasan (former chief digital officer of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Columbia University) and veteran Wikimedian Andrew Lih (User:Fuzheado) as they march through social and mobile strategies via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp and other platforms for community engagement. Come share your own strategies and success/failure stories for using social media with your own communities.
We will also plan to showcase these tools at the Water Scarcity edit-a-thon the next day at the Cape Town Tourism offices, by using Facebook Live, Twitter and Instagram. We encourage folks to not only help edit Wikimedia content, but come and practice using social media to cover our community for the world to see.
