Conference Social Media
This was my second year serving as CSLA's website/social media chair for the conference. I was responsible for posting all the conference information on CSLA's website. I was also responsible for posting to social media on behalf of CSLA. I am very comfortable with Twitter, but not so much with Instagram. One of the ways I "stretched" myself this year was by posting photos to Instagram rather than Twitter. While Instagram has an option to automatically send postings to Twitter, once these posts reach Twitter, they contain only a link to the image, not the image itself. So, readers need to be willing to click the link to view the photo. To avoid double-posting and to make images from Instagram viewable right in Twitter, I was able to set up an IFTTT "recipe" that automatically posts all Instagram posts to Twitter as "native" tweets. Check it out! I am also using it for my Library social media accounts.
Unfortunately, IFTTT didn't work to also post to Facebook and Flickr. It has recipes for these apps, but they don't work for pages and groups. (CSLA has a Facebook page and a Flickr group. It doesn't have separate accounts.) So, I'm afraid you won't find conference postings on Facebook. I did post all the photos to Flickr, but those had to be done manually after the fact. Please do visit the CSLA Flickr group for conference photos. And, if you attended the conference and took photos, please them to the group.
