Greetings fellow communicators! Looking for a place to learn more about social media? Well look no further! Come join Ohio University’s Scripps PRSSA Chapter Saturday, February 21st from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Walter Hall.
Allow me to give you variety of reasons why you should attend the #OHIOU Social Media Summit.
Lets start with what exactly is social media. Social media is the collection of online communication channels dedicated to community-based input, interaction, content sharing and collaboration. It basically means that social media is a way of communicating online with a lot of people, getting a lot of people into a few places to discuss and share a wide range of information. Today social media is becoming one of the most useful tools for communicators everywhere and the fact that it is constantly evolving makes learning about social media even more useful.
So why come? “The Social Media Summit in 2012 was my first big event with Scripps PRSSA,” said current Chapter President Cidnye Weimer. Weimer was only a freshman at the time and said that it was her first exposure to the world of social media.
“I learned so much and I took away a lot of information that I still use today,” said Weimer, “I’m so excited to bring this event back to campus and help educate Ohio University on all aspects of social media usage!”
Our current Chapter President, Cidnye, couldn’t have said it better- The Social Media Summit is a great way to get some exposure to the amazing world of social media and acquire some skills that you will use again in the future.
The #OHIOU Social Media Summit will consist of two session options, and one of those sessions is the beginner session. In this session we will break down the basics of social media. The advanced class will consist of social media auditing, how to use search engine optimization and analytics, and how to use social media to get a job.
There is just so much you can possibly learn from attending the #OHIOU Social Media Summit! The Scripps PRSSA would like to warmly welcome all students, faculty, and staff members of the Ohio University community to attend the #OHIOU Social Media Summit, in addition to our surrounding regional PRSSA Chapters. Oh and did I mention that lunch will be provided by Subway? Sounds good right?
