In the recruitment approach we will make use of various tools of social media. The emphasis on local ownership implies that local meetings can be organised for various purposes: to teach the use of the #tags and distribute the local (printed) #tag guidelines, to launch specific projects, etc. Such meetings are important to reduce the digital divide and make the digital less-literate confident in quickly finding the information they need, or to contribute to the discourses that matter to them. In the recruitment approach we must also consider that the information shared is not on a continuous basis relevant for the users. A dictionary or an encyclopedia are used only once in a while.
For international meetings we will rely upon virtual meeting technologies such as Skype calls and Google hangouts.
Social media setting
Assuming that the owner of a social capital wiki also takes the lead in the distribution of the local #Tag Guideline, these social media channels1 are recommended alongside the wiki ownership:
- leanpub account for publishing the #Tag guideline as a local language e-book
- a twitter account that follows the local news and press twitter accounts, and international organisations that are locally represented
- G+ page that follows the local news and press G+ pages or accounts, and international organisations
- G+ page for visibility with G+ users
- a Facebook account for visibility with Facebook users in the constituency
- a profile on other social platforms that are popular in the constituency
- badges of all these profiles are on the social capital wiki
To be determined.
