Facebook, Twitter & more! Why you should connect with social networks at S4SCON.

Aug 31, 2020

Being in-the-know on all the latest social media updates and how they not only affect your job but also your communities during crises, is an enormous task, but it's absolutely possible. Get the latest on how to best use their platforms from the social media networks themselves, only at events like the virtual Social for Safety Conference.

Imagine getting the opportunity to easily hear from Facebook, Twitter and Nextdoor on how to really use their networks to their fullest potential. Over two days, you’ll learn the best ways to connect with your audiences using actionable tips directly from their government teams. You’ll be able to best protect your agency and keep public trust. You’ll even make your job a bit easier, which we all know in 2020, feels nearly impossible to do. 

Who will you virtually hear from at S4SCON? Major reps from Facebook, Twitter & Nextdoor are here to get you actionable advice to best use their platforms to connect with each other, build your virtual communities and get in touch with your audiences, especially during crisis.

Janelle Watson, from Facebook’s Politics & Government Outreach Team, will kick-off the conference with getting you the latest on “Crisis Response at Facebook.” They know that 2020 has brought many challenges to government agencies in the U.S., and that connecting and building community is more important now than ever. What are the best practices, products and tools to help socialgov use Facebook effectively to build community resilience? Janelle will share those Facebook tips to support response and relief initiatives, engage in ongoing recovery efforts, disseminating timely info and more. You don’t want to miss this chance to connect with her!

Who best to get the latest Twitter updates from other than their own global crisis response program lead? Tom Tarantino is responsible for U.S. state and city government relations at Twitter, and he’ll be joining us on the second day of the conference to let you know how to best use Twitter during a crisis.

Getting people to pay attention to preventive public safety topics was a chore before, but now with COVID-19, it’s much, much more difficult. Hear from Nextdoor’s Senior City Strategist Joseph Porcelli on how you can break through apathy AND measure behavior change as a result! He’ll explore strategies and tactics used by thousands of agencies to move the needle with emergency preparedness, fire prevention and crime prevention in his session happening mid-morning on the second day of virtual S4SCON.

Virtual S4SCON is your best chance to truly connect with these influential people on the best ways to help yourself, boost your agency, elevate your profession, and most importantly, connect with your communities.
