Social Media Guide
Get active on social media now! Share daily, if you can. It’s a great way to spread the word about your event and share messages to prevent falls.
Hashtags are a great way to connect with a broader audience. They start with a hash (#) and include a word or phrase to indicate a larger conversation. You can learn more about hashtags here. Try to only use one or two at a time. Use these hashtags on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Get creative and put your spin on the posts, or share and retweet from the Injury Prevention Centre! Find out more about the key messages to help you write your posts.
