I have found a new social media toy to play with and I think it’s quite exciting as it will supplement what I already do and save me some time, if I’ve understood it correctly – Scoop It! It turns out that far more people have heard of this than I realised(!) and are already busy using it productively but I came across it earlier today and have spent a few hours working it all out and experimenting.
I have set up a page called “Policing, Mental Health and Criminal Justice” – my natural Venn Diagram! Whenever I spot media content I want to share, as well as sticking it on Twitter, I can now “scoop it” onto this page which develops as a rolling barrel of material.
In terms of accessing it, it’s absolutely up to you –
- You can follow it via the website and you’ll get an email – click the link above and where the top left picture has a blue button with “suggestions” and a small red flag above the “Searching Patients” blog: that will read “FOLLOW” and you just enter your email address.
- You can save the link above as a bookmark – check it whenever you want to;
- You could do absolutely nothing at all – wait for me to promote it which I will do once a month with my monthly newsletter blog at the top of it.
I’m sure I’ll learn more about this as I go and it may take me a while to work out how much to put on there and how to push it all around – but I hope you’ll find it useful and I assure you I won’t circulate it too frequently!
If you want it more often than monthly, I recommend you bookmark it or follow it! 🙂
