We’ll be using this one for most of our content. G+ posts allow a deep level of richness and customization. The network has recently picked up steam as an area to discuss ideas/interests and connect with people based on these specifically.
(see how in this Forbes article)
A feature we’re especially excited about is the ability to sort our stream based on different hashtags we use. We have the following 5 right now:
- Nottingham-specific ideas, happenings and groups
- Our unique-video-a-day countdown
- TED and other TEDx Talks shared on here
- Our postings on TED and TEDx related news from other organisers and the main website
- Our own updates and posts that are specific to our TEDx event
Here is where the bulk of our following comes from, just based on its widespread use. We’ll use this channel for more frequent updates.
The 140 character limit is perfect for tweeting general updates about the event, progress and other news. We’ll also link either link to content that we post across on Google+ or do a ‘Twitter-friendly’ version of the content.
Naturally we’d be posting most frequently here, so for the absolute latest on what TEDxNottingham is up to check this profile out first.
We’ve set up our page on Facebook to ensure we’re accessible to the widest base of people possible.
Here we’ll post things that follow from our other two profiles. We’ll also share news and pieces on what other TEDx events are up to, and what’s happening at the main TED conferences.
Also as a sidenote, you may have noticed up to four social plugins on some of our pages. The first bar across the bottom has interact buttons to directly share only the current page and show the number of shares. The right most footer labelled ‘Interact..’ is to share the entire website and tweet to us directly. The third footer labelled ‘Our pages’ has links that would then take you to our presences on these networks. The fourth on some pages is a badge in the sidebar that connects directly to our Google+ page and allows you to add us to your circles without leaving this website.
It may be a bit much, but we stress that the focus of any TEDx is the conversation it can generate and these are key to that aim.
