Socitm 2009 re-inventing local public services – radical thinking, practical solutions
As mentioned by Adrian Hancock (Socitm MD) in his blog post on the Socitm blog here. I have been assigned to tweet throughout the Socitm’s Annual Conference taking place on the 11th – 13th October in Edinburgh. Check out Adrian’s overview of what we are planning to do for the event from this excerpt from his blog post below..
I met with Liz Azyan early evening (@Liz_Azyan if you are a twitterer) to discuss how Socitm can best use social media at socitm09 (#socitm09). We will be sending live streams from our key sessions which can be followed on our stream (@socitm) as well as Liz’s own and a site constructed specifically for conference output (www.socitm09.net).
There may be a lot of hype around about the benefits or potential benefits of social media but I am fully persuaded that the concept is ‘going places’ and that we will continue to explore how best to use it to the benefit of our members.
