Hola and Hello!

In this edition, I'd like to emphasize something that is not only my area of expertise, 💙 but also one of my professional passions: effective social media management. If you manage social media for your organization or business, you understand the value of audience engagement on your posts. A good number of likes and shares is always useful, regardless of the main goal of your post. In my experience, when co-hosting an event, for example, all parties involved use a single image and copy to create the same event post on their respective social media accounts. As a result, the same post is replicated on multiple social media accounts, and engagement is unique to each post. 💡 Here's an important tip: It is highly recommended that only one social media account uploads the original post and the others share it as many times as necessary. You'll see the number of shares increasing over time. Resharing a post is a powerful feature that is used to maximize the exposure and performance of a good post. Reposting or sharing one same post aggregates all comments, shares, and likes in the post insights, but on Facebook, your account will still receive the engagement that took place on your page. On LinkedIn, for example, reposting another user's post will still attribute any subsequent interactions to that user. On TikTok, the engagement is credited to the original content creator. When you think about it, the likelihood of it going viral is much higher, because most platforms will only show users the most engaging content. Do you see the advantages? This is why, I strongly recommend that in the future, whenever your organization's efforts require more exposure, please tag @autmhq in your posts, and we will gladly reshare your publications to help promote them amongst our communities. Austin Urban Technology Movement (AUTMHQ) is a one-stop shop for tech news and events not only in Austin, but across Texas, and, many times, nationally and internationally, so let's spiral up! Make sure you follow @autmhq on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, TikTok, and YouTube! See you there!

STEMconnector State of STEM Webinar: A Framework to Support Organizational Decision Making

Webinar attendees will receive an in-depth look into the STEM ecosystem and come away with an understanding of how to leverage the framework to drive impact in their respective organizations.

If anything takes you to Dallas this March, make sure you participate in The March MATHness Challenge!

This March marks the beginning of a great new way to engage children in grades 4-8 with math and STEM embedded in the environment around them - with a chance for them to win $50 every week as well! The Challenge is open to children, school-based and out of school K-12 educators, parents and families. We’ve created a collection of over a hundred multi-media math walk stops across Dallas for children to explore and learn from, developed by us at the talkSTEM nonprofit alongside SMU, under the walkSTEM and MathFinder initiatives - with support from the National Science Foundation as well as several Dallas-based grant-giving organizations. Children and educators alike can download the free Otocast app to start visiting stops in 15 participating locations across Dallas and start earning raffle entries, whether independently or in teams with other classmates.
