NAIDOC Week mid-week

So it's mid-week of NAIDOC week, and the social media buzz for NAIDOC is about what is happening locally around the country.

Today from our Deadly Bloggers, 

But it's not just blogs, we're seeing images and reports of events from people around the continent, on platforms like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.  Rhianna Patrick from the ABC's Speaking Out, used Storify to collate images and stories from all over  social media about the first day of NAIDOC Celebrations. Storify is a great tool to curate a picture of a topic all in one place.

One last thing, Luke Pearson is leading the Get NAIDOC trending movement on Twitter. Trending basically means that a term or topic is is being talking about by many people at the same time. By trending, topics can gain broader attention and audience. In itself it's not a goal of a movement, it's an opportunity to grow people's understanding, knowledge and awareness of a topic, event, or issue.

Think I'm finally getting the hang of this radio thing. I hope I sound ok. I did manage to fit in a "Go Qld". Lol.
