Four Reasons to Use Social Media at the ASCO Annual Meeting
- Join the discussion: Use #ASCO19 on Twitter and Instagram to follow and participate in conversations about the ASCO Annual Meeting in real time. During last year’s ASCO Annual Meeting, more than 17,000 health-care professionals, researchers, news outlets, patients, and advocates sent more than 80,000 tweets!
- 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 #ASCO19 Digital Engagement Meetup, a chance for attendees interested in oncology’s intersection with social media to meet and network. The reception will take place on Saturday, June 1 at 5:30 PM. For more details, visit am.asco.org.
- Stay up-to-date: Following ASCO on Twitter (@ASCO), Facebook (@ ASCOCancer), and Instagram (@ascocancer) during the Annual Meeting will ensure you’re getting the latest information from the Society. ASCO shares useful information on social media 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 and Instagram throughout the Meeting—watch for their posts as they lead the social media conversation! ■
