IC 2012 Review via Social Media!
In February 2012, BBYO’s International Convention (IC) brought together nearly 900 Jewish teens from 13 countries to celebrate and strengthen AZA, BBG and the Jewish people.
Our talented teen leadership and professionals made full use of the various communication channels at their disposal. Our central media hub, the IC Blog, received 38,000+ page views. There were over 3,000 tweets using the #AZABBGIC2012 hashtag and our live broadcast on Jewish Life TV and Jewish Rock Radio had the potential to reach an audience of millions. Our thanks goes out to all of you who made this possible.
In the spirit of social media, we offer this International Convention recap:
On Twitter…@BBGSganit: So this is what 900 teens look like… Whoa. #azabbgic2012

Leading the way in Social Media
When the foundation began work in the social media sphere, as with any other organization, we had our early adopters. Rachel Mohl Abrahams, a senior program officer at the foundation whose portfolio includes educational technology and online learning, is one of them. She has used twitter, facebook and this blog to advance her work and share what she has been learning. And, according to Getting Smart, she is doing a fabulous job. Such a great job, in fact, that she has just been dubbed a “twero” or “twitter hero.”
As we continue to integrate social media in our work, build and weave networks of people committed to our shared values of Jewish education, we wanted to wish Rachel a Kol hakavod for walking the walk and tweeting the tweet!
