The IUS Expands to Social Media
The IUS has expanded our online presence by setting up accounts on each of the main social networks. From Twitter and Facebook to Google+ and LinkedIn, the IUS's new social media initiative will notify you of all IUS updates. In addition to news from the IUS, we're going to be working to use each of these hubs to allow IUS Fellows to meet and sustain the kind of professional relationships that make Fellowship such a worthwhile pursuit.
Social networking allows organizations like the IUS to continue the conference experience to our membership through the entire year by providing discussion platforms for research, opportunities, and conversation. With the addition of a YouTube account, we'll also be able to make video content available.
There's no need to follow every account; information will be shared across all platforms while continuing to be posted here on the IUS website. Add the IUS on your preferred network and you'll start connecting with your peers instantaneously.
