How should Scouters approach the use of social media, both as a means of showcasing their Scout group and as a means of communicating with Scouts?
We take a look at a Scouting Magazine article (well, blog post, really) about youth protection and text messages as a means of troop communication, and discuss some of its recommendations. We then expand the discussion to a) cover not just text messages, but different forms of social media as well, b) include Scouts Canada's own bylaws, policies, and procedures and what these recommend when it comes to using electronic communications, and c) look at some of Scouts Canada's recommendations for the use of social media by Scout groups.
As always, a big thank you to the folks at Scouting Radio for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience. If you're listening to us on Scouting Radio right now, let us know; reach out and get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
