Social Networking Used at Conference

In our efforts to foster a real sense of community, the ACO has leapt into the 21st century and has chosen to utilize social media. You can now find the ACO on Facebook and Twitter and we are very excited to tell you about it. Twitter was used at the ACO Conference for communication about the programs and activity.

The ACO plans to use social media, specifically Facebook and Twitter in order to bring about more awareness about our programs, such as the monthly Expert Speaker Series Calls and Coach Chat. The ACO’s programs are an essential benefit to being a member and we want to make sure that everyone knows about them and remembers to attend.

Additionally, Twitter and Facebook will be used to enrich communication. If you have a question about your membership, can’t log in to your account, or would like to spread the word about a coaching or ADHD event, send us a tweet and we’ll help you out.

You can find us on Facebook

On Facebook you can upload pictures of the conference or other ADHD and/or coaching related event. You can also start a conversation or join in on one that is already happening. Facebook is a great way to connect and learn about each other on a more personal basis.

You can find us on Twitter

You can use Twitter to send out 140 character messages. It is a “real time” way of communicating and the ACO’s Twitter feed is monitored by a real person. If you have a message that is specifically for the ACO, you should send it as an “at reply” or like this: @ADHDcoaches and then type your message. You can also send a direct message as well which is private, unlike an “at reply”, and nobody can see it but the ACO. We promise to respond to all “at replies” and direct messages.

We are not replacing the Yahoo listserve with social media; rather, it is another avenue in which we can all interact with each other and raise awareness about the ACO and ADHD coaching. We hope you’ll join us and follow us on Twitter and “like” us on Facebook.
