We are so excited to announce a new volunteer program at #MEAction! We will now have social media ambassadors! A social media ambassador is a volunteer who is knowledgeable, an enthusiastic supporter of the ME community and #MEAction, and has a strong social media presence. Each ambassador will amplify #MEAction’s social media efforts and share news back with #MEAction’s social media teams to make sure we are hearing the community voice. Most ambassadors will focus on one platform but it is totally up to them if they choose to do more.
As social media platforms change how they share content, it is becoming necessary to be more creative in order to make sure you see content from #MEAction. One thing you can do to make sure we show up on your social media platform is to interact with us! Like/ Comment / Share!
Social media ambassadors will help by sharing our content where the ME community gathers on social media. It is a way to work around algorithms set up for business but not with nonprofits in mind. We do not have the advertising budgets many businesses have to boost content and make sure it is seen. While we certainly hope that all of you are a social media ambassador for #MEAction in your social circle, we are excited to have a new set of ambassadors to volunteer for this important work!
A social media ambassador speaks in their own voice. They do not speak for #MEAction. They can choose what to amplify and we ask that they put their health first. They can work when able and on their own timetable. So when you hear from one of our social media ambassadors you are hearing from that one person’s perspective. They will use their own page/account to share information. On Facebook they can post in groups. They will work with #MEAction behind-the-scenes as well to make sure that we hear what many in our community are saying. However, just because you discussed it with an ambassador, please do not assume we have heard it! We will do our best but writing to us at [email protected] is still the best avenue to speak to us!
If you are interested in becoming a social media ambassador or social media volunteer for global or US social media, please contact our social media coordinator at [email protected].
Announcing our first social media ambassador
Now for the extra exciting news! We have our very first social media ambassador for #MEAction! Bettie Hough from the UK has kindly agreed to take on this new role. Bettie has a passion and drive to share news with and from the community. She has done wonderful work with #MEActionUK’s Facebook page and #MillionsMissingUK, as well as many other pages and groups.
Since Bettie will be a social media ambassador, she will be stepping down as admin for #MEActionUK Facebook. It will be run by #MEActionUK volunteers & coordinator. (Look for all #MEActionUK official posts here!) Bettie Hough will maintain #MillionsMissingUK as her own personal page. These two pages are entirely separate and will be run by different people. We hope you will enjoy following both!
Also, make sure to follow #MillionsMissing Scotland as they are the broadcast page for #MEActionScotland.
We would like to thank all of our social media volunteers that help to keep our community informed and growing! A big thank you to Bettie Hough for being our first social media ambassador!
