TAKE YOUR MEETING TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH WEB 2.0

You'll find several ways to get involved in the meeting and network with your peers—before, during, and after your trip—through a variety of Web 2.0/social media innovations. Adding social media to your meeting experience gives you a greater sense of its broader impacts and can also bring the meeting before a wider audience by including geoscientists around the world who aren't able to attend.

GSA is @geosociety on Twitter

twitterGSA has a community of more than 2,100 followers on Twitter—a global audience that includes geoscientists, academics, students, institutions, agencies, and geoscience companies. Get regular meeting updates by following @geosociety (and GSA's followers!) on Twitter.

What is Twitter?
Twitter, originally developed as a short messaging service, much like cell-phone texting, is now considered an essential "microblogging" tool. It helps get your 140-character reports (and links) out to people who want this information—people who have elected to "follow" your tweets or search your subject hashtag.
What are Hashtags?
Hashtags are words or phrases (without spaces) preceded by the # symbol, which allows them to become searchable, much like keywords or metadata. Typical hashtags used by GSA include #geoscience and #citizenscience. This year's meeting hashtag is #GSAMinn.
