#ChSocM (Church Social Media) Chat Transcript: Social Media for Church Conferences, Workshops. Conventions, Assemblies and More!

We chatted about best practices for using social media 
to extend the reach of public events.

This week's chat moderated by Meredith Gould (@meredithgould)

Topics:
T1: What are your pet peeves about social media for church events/conferences?
T2: What’s your best counsel for ensuring social media success during church events/conferences?
T3: Most people would say Twitter is an essential platform to use, which other(s) would you consider important? Why?

For Fun: For which church event (any denomination!) would you love to live-tweet?

Read the transcript on Storify!

#ChSocM Chat Preview: Social Media for Conferences, Workshops, Diocesan Conventions, Synod Assemblies and More!

Prep for #ChSocM chat Tuesday, September 23 at 9PM ET.

My church social media life on Twitter really ramped up a few notches when, from the comfort of my home (and in my pjs) I attended the 76th General Convention of the Episcopal Church and the ELCA Churchwide Assembly. In 2009.

I watched whatever was livestreamed, followed hashtags, and plunged into conversations with people attending in person as well as people following along online. 

Some of those I met during those Twitter-based conversations have become dear colleagues and friends. 

My appreciation for and commitment to ecumenism was also reinforced by being able to observe and participate. (More about that in this post, Ecumenical Escapades

Back then, hashtags had not yet permeated the general culture. Churches were just beginning to experiment with them, not quite realizing how doing so would extend reach and expand conversation. 

It's now 2014 and on any given day and almost every weekend, we can go fishing in the Twitterstream and catch up with an abundance of events. (You just want to soak in that metaphor, right?) 

Resistance to using hashtags for church events doesn't seem to be much of an issue these days, but competency still is...for some. 

This week's we'll focus on using social media to make public events even more public. Come gather online at 9PM ET on September 23 and let's chat!


Note: Since February 2014, this guide to Live Tweeting Church Events has racked up 6000+ views and I find myself in frequent conversation about best practices.

Church Social Media Chat: Finding and Sharing Hashtags. Managing Disgruntled Volunteers.

We chatted about hashtags -- which ones are great for church
leaders/observers and how to find more. 
Also, what to do when a volunteer goes rogue?

The topics:
T1: Other than #chsocm, which church/faith/digital ministry hashtags do you routinely follow?
T1a: Which denominationally-specific hashtags do you recommend everyone follow to enhance ecumenism?
T2: Which tools do you use to locate interesting hashtags and tweetchats?

Take a quick look at this: http://www.symplur.com/healthcare-hashtags/ created by @symplur for the healthcare industry.
T2a  What would it take to create something like this for tweeps interested in church and faith?
T2b How could we make it easier for our community to find useful/illuminating hashtags?

Now switching gears…big time.
T3: What protocols do you have in place for neutralizing disgruntled volunteers who have admin access to your church social media accounts?
T3a: If no protocols in place, any tips about how to handle someone who goes suddenly rogue?
