The June 16 Blandin Broadband Leadership Roundtable discussion centered on social media practices in Community Broadband Initiatives. I did a brief history overview beginning with Google Fiber and their community competition and went up through today’s collaborative environment with friendly providers’ use of fiberhood survey practices. From there, the conversation went to a more general overview of successful social media strategies. We talked Facebook. Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Next-door and TikTok. Multiple folks chimed in with both successes and challenges of the use of social media in communicating with customers and community members. We talked extensively about magnifying your social media strategies by re-tweeting, liking posts, tagging and hash tagging. We also had a good conversation about the need to ensure accuracy of your own posts and to work to fight disinformation. Thanks to all who chimed in! It made it a very interesting conversation.
On Tuesday June 23, we will talk about the rapid emergence of telehealth in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. To contribute to the conversation, find out what is now available from your own health care network or even bring your own tele-health care experience!
