Using Social Media for Your Club
Social media can be used to great effect in Toastmaster clubs. The sections below will explain how to use these free resources to your benefit. Most are already free, and the District has paid for some to benefit the members in our District.
Many of these Social Media outlets will require you to set up an account if you do not have one to view content. Each one has a registration page which Is very user-friendly and will allow you to create a user name and password. Also, please pay close attention to the password guidelines for some of the channels as they have specific rules (e.g. No special characters).
