9:30 AM Large Group Discussion on Social Media’s Role During a Crisis
Social media can be the focal point and primary source of information during a crisis situation. Our social channels can become outlets for updates during a public health situation, or are often ground zero for crises that originate there. During this discussion, we’ll talk about how our teams are set up to handle each situation. What role do our social media managers play, and how do we work with other key stakeholders? We can also share thoughts on playbooks and how we prepare ourselves to handle crisis situations.
