Dear All,

During Social Media WG call on Tuesday August 19 2014, participants agreed
to the idea that our WG members will serve as ‘Social Media Liaisons’ for
other At-Large working groups.

For the people who weren't on the call, I would like to elaborate on the
idea and ask for your support:

Many of you are involved in other At-Large Working Groups (
https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/At-Large+Working+Groups), such
as the Future Challenges WG, new gTLD WG and the Capacity Building WG. As a
Social Media Liaison for a WG, you will become the reporter and provide
short regular updates on WG activities.

The intent of the ‘Social Media Liaison’ initiative is to

- encourage ALS members to continue to engage with the At-Large community
after #ATLAS2
- helping ALS members following our At-Large Social Media Accounts to
understand what WGs do and encourage them to participate by becoming
- promote At-Large WG activities to curious outsiders (following our
At-Large Social Media Accounts ) that could decide to become members of

Regarding the content of the WG updates, there are several possibilities:

- Upcoming WG call time, call info, AC room link
- Key agenda items discussed during the calls
- Key deliverables produced by the WG - draft Articles, statements,
presentations discussed on the public WGs’ mailing lists and the conference
- Key decisions made by the WG

There are two ways for you to relay WG information to Ariel Liang from
ICANN Staff who is in charge of the At-Large Social Media accounts :

* If you have a Twitter handle, you may tweet the WG updates on your own
while mentioning @ICANN_AtLarge in the tweets. In that way, Ariel will get
an automatic notification of your tweets and can quickly retweet via the
official At-Large handle.

* If you don’t have a Twitter handle, you can Skype or email the updates to
Ariel, and she will tweet it out.

If you like to be a Social Media Liaison for a (or several) WGs, please let
Ariel know and she will update the information on the wiki space at

Also, if you haven’t shared with Ariel your Twitter handle and/or Skype ID
(if any), please let her know, so she can follow you/add you for updates.

After collecting the information, Ariel and I will follow up with you on
further implementation details.

Thank You All for your efforts!

Kind Regards,

Dev Anand Teelucksingh
At-Large Social Media Chair
