Network with other participants
Join our dedicated IGF 2013 Bali group for recommendations, workshops and news related to #IGF2013.
Which workshops are you interested in? What are your thoughts about main and emerging themes? Do you have important information to share about logistics (VISA, places to visit..)? Are you planning an informal meeting? Join the group and post info on the comment wall.
Join in the conversation
Many people participate in the IGF by blogging and tweeting to share ideas, insights and reflections on the sessions. Using social media tools such as blogging, tweeting and sharing other relevant content helps you capture insights from the conference, and be part of a conversation that takes place online around the world.
This year too, we invite you to use Diplo’s IG community platform, to:
Share your blog posts with the community via your page at www.diplointernetgovernance.org. What were the main highlights during a workshop or session? Which themes need to be explored in detail? Read the short guide on how to use the platform to share your content, which contains many tips. Please tag your blog posts ‘igf2013’
Share videos and photos – videos and photos are a great way of captuing what happens on the ground. The guide will also show you how to upload them on the community platform. Please tag your photos ‘igf2013’ to be added to the main IGF 2013 album on the platform.
Tweet by adding #igf2013 to your tweets. You might tweet a key quote from a speaker, share links to useful resources, or offer your own analysis of the workshop discussion. You can also post your tweet as a status update on the community portal (left column, under Main), and post it simultaneously to Twitter and Facebook.
As usual, we will be sharing content from the community platform via our social media accounts. Join us:
