The rise of communication technologies and social media has changed the way we interact. Alcohol companies have been quick to capitalise on these new ways of communicating, supporting Australia’s drinking culture that is increasingly being curated online. Social media therefore acts as both an imperative and a solution for health promoters who want to curb alcohol and other drug-related harm.
This seminar will examine a number of best practice social media case studies—both from alcohol companies and health promoters. Covering topics such as app development, community moderation and free analytics tools, the seminar will be useful for anyone who is interested in using new communication technologies better.
