6 social media and photo tips

Social media is an efficient way to boost awareness. And a simple photo can say more than a paragraph of text—helping you share information, highlight achievements and communicate what your club is passionate about. Here are six tips for using social media and photography to show what your K-Kids club is all about.

      1. Stay connected. "Like" the official K-Kids page on Facebook and
         follow us on Twitter. Feel free to share any images or stories that
         you think your community would like to see.

      2. Be responsible. Obtain a signed photo release form (found on
         page 58 for K-Kids in the advisor guide) and save it for every
         K-Kids member in your club. Be sure that you don’t post a
         picture of any member who does not have a photo release form
         on file.

      3. Keep it real. Photos of real events and activities help convey your
          club's culture. Snap a photo of your K-Kids in action. Take photos
          that capture an emotion. Capture moments at charter
          ceremonies, member and officer installations, hands-on service
          projects, advocacy efforts and fundraising events. 

      4. Keep it in focus. Don't use blurry or small photos. Crisp photos
          look great on different types and sizes of devices and computers.

      5. Keep it simple. When describing your photo, give readers all the
          information they need to understand your post. But be
          concise—include only important details like club name, school
          name, location and activity. Try to keep text to two or three
          sentences.

      6. Be strategic. Use the @ tag to alert specific people that you're
          talking about them, giving them a heads-up, and are open to
          them responding. And always tag @KiwanisKids so we can
         share your club's hard work!
