IDSA Offers Social Networking Tools

As the 48th Annual Meeting of IDSA, Oct. 21-24 in Vancouver, nears, the Society has developed a set of social networking resources to help members and meeting attendees correspond and interact more effectively with IDSA and each other. We hope these resources will facilitate collaboration, allow us to engage more effectively with members, and help create an online community of ID specialists.

The new tools include:

  • IDSA on Twitter: Look for important announcements, schedule changes, and answers to your meetings-related questions through IDSA’s Twitter account. To see what people are saying about the Annual Meeting on Twitter, search for the #ID2010 tag to find out. Need help? IDSA has created a tutorial to explain the basics of using Twitter.
  • IDSA’s Flickr account: See photos of your colleagues or take a sneak peek at the Vancouver Convention Centre before the Annual Meeting begins. We’re hoping to grow our collection of event photos: If you attend the meeting and take pictures, please tag your photos with “#ID2010” when posting them on the Flickr site.  
  • IDSA’s Facebook page: For help getting started, IDSA has created a tutorial describing how to create an effective Facebook account and offering tips for medical professionals using Facebook. If you already have a Facebook account, please click “Like” on the IDSA Facebook page to receive real-time announcements from the Society.
  • IDSA’s LinkedIn group: If you’re looking for a more professional networking experience, IDSA has set up an official Society group on LinkedIn. By creating a profile based on your résumé or CV, LinkedIn can help you find colleagues in the ID field.

We hope that members will find these tools valuable in collaborating with their colleagues and with IDSA before, during, and after the Annual Meeting. Feel free to browse our social networking page, Connect at the Annual Meeting, for more information about these resources. If you have any questions or comments, please e-mail
