There will be a class this thursday pertaining to “Using Social Media in Disasters”. I plan to attend and will take as many volunteers as I can haul. We must register you online, so let me know right away if you would like to attend!
Date: October 24, 2013
Time: 8am to 5pm
Location: Robert H. Mollohan Research Center- 1000 Galliher Dr., Fairmont, WV
The course will provide participants with the knowledge and skills of social media and its uses, as well as the current tools, methods, and models to properly make use of social media for crisis communication. Participants will take part in facilitator-led activities. Through the use of social media tools, participants will learn and master skills to disseminate information and monitor, track, measure, and analyze social media traffic. Participants will be able to use social media as a method to identify warning signs that a crisis is developing. REQUIREMENTS: Participants will be required to bring their own laptop (preferably) or wi-fi enabled device to the training session for the hands-on exercises.
