Renewal of BCAM's Social Media Activities
Kia Ora! With Felicity Tepper, our blogger for BCAM, finally more settled in her new home in New Zealand, she now has time to take on more social media activities for BCAM. To this end, we are revving up our social media approaches again, as follows:
- Conscious Cosmetics blog - we are updating this again on a minimum weekly basis and, we hope, more often in 2010. You’ll find stories, ponderings, tips, exposés, links, etc., about the safer use of cosmetics, about breast cancer prevention activities and about BCAM’s activities. Please leave us comments on each posting to let us know how we’re doing, and feel free to email us with ideas, snippets, event information, etc.
- BCAM Int on Twitter (the “Int” stands for “international” since Felicity is providing worldwide coverage). If you’re not already a tweeter, now’s the time to give tweeting a go. Twitter is the ultimate way to stay informed in just 140 characters. It’s fast, it’s fun, and it’s highly informative. We will be aiming to tweet more regularly than blog, simply because it’s so easy. Mostly this will bring you key online links and short, useful messages about breast cancer prevention and related issues of relevance. Please follow us as we want to build up a large following to make a difference; once we get noticed, we will get publicized elsewhere, so this is worthwhile!
- Facebook - we’ll be maintaining Facebook news, information, ideas, etc., and linking this with Twitter and other social media activities. If you’re not already a fan and friend on Facebook, please join us soon!
- Coming in 2010: Felicity is looking at a range of other social media strategies for BCAM, with an eye to possible news feeds and a wiki which will enable us to interact whenever we wish to share ideas, information, hints, etc., about all BCAM activities. If you have any ideas or thoughts, please send them our way.
So far, we’ve been refreshing our social media activities with help from Felicity, Carol Secter and Janice Melanson. What we’d really appreciate as well are your contributions for BCAM’s social media activities – any kind of information from a simple link, a recipe, a poem, to a whole story – any time you feel like forwarding information to us. Whatever you feel moved to share with us in the online environment is perfect for social media activities. You can reach us at www.bcam.qc.ca.
We are looking forward to cyber-connecting with everyone in one or more of our online social media spaces!
