Cover image for _Join the Club_Date: Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Time: 2:00pm-3:30pm

Place: HSC-LIB 2.039 (on the second floor of Briscoe Library)

Address:  7703 Floyd Curl Dr, San Antonio

At the next #prismSA meetup: “Social Media and the ‘Social Cure.'” Can social media promote large-scale positive behavior change?

The UT Health Science Center’s “One Community/One Book” selection for 2013 is Tina Rosenberg’s Join the Club: How Peer Pressure Can Transform the World. In the book, the Pulitzer-prizewinning author investigates movements and campaigns that have used the power of “peer pressure” to bring about life-altering behavior change in areas from health to lifestyle choices to political action. In this month’s meetup of the Professional Interest in Social Media (PrISM) group, we’ll discuss Rosenberg’s examples of the “social cure,” and the potential role of social media tools in promoting positive change.

Time: 2:00pm-3:30pm

Address:  7703 Floyd Curl Dr, San Antonio

This month, the topic is: “Look Sharp! Representing yourself and your institution well in social media.” What makes an institution channel look and sound competent and professional in social media — or not? What kinds of social media posts and activities reflect well on you and your department or organization — and which ones reflect poorly? This discussion will be an opportunity for new and experienced social media users to share questions, tips and suggestions to make us all look sharp.

Not all social media posts are created equal.  What characteristics distinguish a successful social media post from one that gets overlooked?  At our July meetup, we’ll discuss specific characteristics that can help your posts stand out from the social media background noise, and get seen and noticed by many more people.

This month, our topic is video.  As we discussed in last month’s meetup, video can be a key element to successful online storytelling & social media impact — and it doesn’t have to be difficult or costly.  We’ll cover some simple & free/low-cost tools you can use to include video in your strategy.
