A simple photo can say so much more than a paragraph of text. Photos can help you share information, communicate what your club is passionate about, and even get the attention of school leaders. Here are six tips to using social media for your K-Kids club.
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 and save it
for every K-Kids member in your club. Be sure to not post a
picture of any member who does not have a photo release form on
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
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!
