If you’re reading this, you probably already know a good deal about social media. Perhaps you’ve even seen the video below. (Some three million others have.) Unless you’re working to keep abreast of constant changes, however, your skills may not be all they could be.
Agvocacy 2.0, from the AgChat Foundation, is a seminar created specifically to help ag producers remain at the forefront of the social media communications revolution.
“Social media provides a unique opportunity for farmers to tell their stories to the world,” said Jeff Fowle, rancher and president of the not-for-profit AgChat Foundation. “At Agvocacy 2.0 we will help them with advanced training in how to use Facebook, Twitter, blogs, video, Flickr and other tools.”
We are in the process of doing our first Agvocacy 2.0 workshop in suburban Chicago. Up to 50 people representing all walks of agriculture will be accepted. This two-day event but some attendees are also seeking sponsorships from agribusiness.
