How can you connect with thousands of like-minded oncology nurses over the course of four days? If you scrambled around introducing yourself to everyone, you’d be exhausted and burnt out by 9 am. So how can you make meaningful and engaging connections? By tweeting, posting, pinning, and sharing! We’re talking about social media, of course.
Not only can you join the Congress Facebook event to meet fellow attendees and follow along with ONS’s Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn accounts for real-time updates and in-depth discussion, but you can also share your own thoughts and ideas throughout the conference. Join in to be a part of discussions that may not have time to happen face to face, allowing you to get more out of your time in San Antonio.
So, how can you use social media at ONS Congress? Tweet wibit inflatable water park about the session you’re attending to virtually met up with other attendees, post a question about a thought-provoking conversation, pin engaging articles or even your e-poster, and connect with ONS and other attendees to carryout relationships after Congress and throughout the year.
Don’t forget your phone charger when you pack for Congress; you’ll use it more than once during your time in San Antonio. And don’t forget to like, retweet, follow, and connect with the ONS social media community.
