New Year, New Look, New TweetChat?
If you haven’t noticed, the DSMA site is looking different than it did last year.
That’s because Cherise wanted a new look for DSMA, along with a more user-friendly interface and combined functionality for all of the avenues of social media that we are becoming involved in. And still, the site is evolving, so I do request your patience with us as we complete this makeover.
One thing that we wanted to share with you guys especially is the new TweetChat page. One problem we ran into when trying to reach out and have more people participate in the #dsma Twitter chats on Wednesday nights, was that no one knew what the address was for the chat. One simple solution to this would be just to put a link in the navigation bar to the Tweetchat room, but one thing about me is that I am not one for doing things the “simple” way. Or at least, not the “this will do” way. I wanted to take it one step further. I wanted the chat to be within DSMA, so that all you have to remember is to go to www.diabetessocmed.com and chat from there.
And now you can!
Just click on the link under Social Media Channels, and it will take you to the page within diabetessocmed.com for the Tweetchat room!
You can either sign in to Twitter and participate, or you can tell a friend and have them check it out before jumping in.
We are really excited to be able to do this and hopefully make being a part of DSMA easier for everyone. Now, the big test will to be sure the site can handle the traffic. So, if you can remember to do so (and don’t worry, we’ll be tweeting a reminder as well), let’s try to chat from DSMA next Wednesday night and see what happens!
