Whether you’re attending the ASNR 56th Annual Meeting and Foundation of the ASNR 2018 or following remotely, social media can provide you with insights and news in real time as the meeting unfolds. Attendees at the meeting can share their meeting highlights, often presenting their opinions and seeking other perspectives from colleagues. If you’re following remotely, social media offers the opportunity to gain insights into meeting trends and interact with attendees who are onsite at the meeting.
Twitter is typically the medium of choice at meetings for its concise, mobile-oriented format, and ability to quickly share text, photos, links and video. See below for new social media initiatives at this year’s meeting.
