In the words of Wakelet …
and we agree.
“In real-time social media streams, perfectly good content gets buried in no time at all.”
We tweet regularly during our learning and networking events and encourage our attendees to do the same. We share links to articles and reports refrenced by speakers, we also share speaker slides, photos and of course key points raised by speakers and attendees.
Social media posts don’t stay on peoples’ radars for as long as other types of digital content and although anyone can search using a hashtag, valuable content does get disconnected and lost.
That’s why we decided to curate as many of our events as possible, saving tweets, articles, photos and links. We then add text to give context and organise all our saved items into collections for our members and followers.
For example, if you are interested in reading how Manchester’s Metro Mayor, Andy Burnham, is working on making Greater Manchester ‘the best place to live, work and invest’ then take a look at our Public Policy Good Employment collection (scroll down).
Why not bookmark our Wakelet page and explore all our collections at your liesure. You’ll always find something new and interesting and we hope valuable to you in your work, your personal and/or professional development and lives.
Let us know what you think.
Whenever we can, we share speaker slides from our events.
