Four Reasons to Use Social Media at the ASCO Annual Meeting
- Join the discussion: Use #ASCO16 on Twitter to follow and participate in the conversation around the Annual Meeting in real time! During last year’s Annual Meeting, more than 12,400 individuals sent over 59,000 tweets, reaching an estimated 262 million people on Twitter. Tweets about the Meeting were sent and shared in more than 90 countries by health-care professionals, researchers, news outlets, patients, advocates, and many others.
- Connect with colleagues: With social networking, it’s easier than ever to reach out to colleagues to initiate digital conversations—and at the Annual Meeting, you’ll have the chance to turn those digital connections into in-person interactions. Don’t miss the #ASCO16 “Tweetup,” a chance for attendees interested in oncology’s intersection with social media to meet, talk, and, of course, tweet. The Tweetup will take place on Saturday, June 4 at 5:45 PM. For more details and to RSVP, visit tweetvite.com/event/ASCO16.
- Stay up-to-date: Following ASCO on Twitter (@ASCO) and Facebook (ASCOCancer) during the Annual Meeting will ensure you’re getting the latest information from the Society. ASCO shares useful information such as live updates on new research, tips to help you navigate McCormick Place, and alerts when last-minute logistical changes occur.
- Enhance your learning: Several ASCO members have been selected as “Featured Voices” for the ASCO Annual Meeting. These volunteers will share their expertise and impressions on Twitter throughout the Meeting. Watch for their tweets as they lead this social media conversation! ■
