According to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary social media is defined as “forms of electronic communication (such as websites for social networking and microblogging) through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages, and the content.”
The board is considering creating a Social Media position (non-voting) that would be responsible for maintaining WSQG information on relevant social media sites. One of the concerns brought up in the survey last year was how do we attract younger/new quilters. One way is to communicate through social media that younger people are using. A study from the Pew Research Center, a non-affiliated organization that records data and demographics, found that Instagram is used by 72% of people aged 13-17, 64% aged 18-29, and 40% aged 30-49 compared to 21% aged 50-60 and 10% aged 65-plus. and that few in the younger age groups use Facebook.
The board would like to know how our members feel about WSQG’s use of social media. Please take the time to complete the survey below or copy the one in the April-May Patchwords and send by postal mail to: Deb Zelenak, 88 Sacajawea Avenue, Lander, WY 82520 by April 30th 2020. You may also complete the survey, scan it and email it to Deb at email@example.com. Thank you.
