international online community for dna barcoding professionals
In my last blog I introduced the Prepare for the Fourth Conference discussion page and encouraged users to get a head-start in coordinating working groups and other get-togethers. Another key tool to cover is the blog system itself.
The Blog option in Connect is actually one of the more versatile tools for reaching out to a wide audience. In addition to adding pictures, hyperlinks, and even videos, you can also share your blog post through e-mail, Twitter, Facebook, and several other social networking sites. The conference organizers will be using the Blog tool to keep participants informed of status updates and upcoming deadlines, but also to solicit feedback on upcoming conference decisions. Viewers can keep track of conference-related blog posts by searching for the bol4 tag. Any Connect member can add their voice to the mix by using the bol4 tag, so log on and share your thoughts on the upcoming conference!
