Thousands "get social" with Network
Monday, December 5, 2011
More than 3,000 Network of Executive Women members and supporters joined NEWnational on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter during the Network's 10th anniversary social media drive.
The Network's LinkedIn group grew 16-fold to more than 2,200 members. People who "Like" the Network's Facebook page tripled to more than 1,200 and NEW's Twitter followers grew 61 percent. The Network launched a YouTube Channel in November and thousands of Network members have joined NEW regional social media pages on LinkedIn and Facebook.
"These results are a powerful testament to the strength of NEW and a fitting cap to our 10th anniversary awareness campaign," said Joan Toth, the Network's president and CEO. "NEW members clearly want to connect with each other and stay informed about the Network."
The Network has increased its online postings, including photos, news stories and videos, and encouraged industry members to stay connected with NEWnational online and to subscribe to its newsletters and alerts.
Aleta Chase, associate director, snack crackers for Kellogg Company, won the campaign's drawing. Chase received a Kindle Fire e-reader for participating in the Network's campaign.
