Twitter Chat #26: Managing Conflict and Dissent NEW DATE

As you may know, we rescheduled this chat out of respect for the tragedy in Boston. We have set the new date and time for this Friday. Please join us!

You’re invited to the monthly BirthGenius Twitter chat!

Friday April 26th, at 1:30 pm ET (NEW date and time)

This month’s topic:

Conflict and dissent are a part of all social media communities – and the birth and breastfeeding world are no exception. How do we support diverse viewpoints and healthy discussions while maintaining a safe and supportive space for our community members?

Jodine ChaseGuest facilitator!

We’ll be joined by Jodine Chase, a longtime breastfeeding advocate and owner of MediaWorksWest, a strategic communications firm specializing in news analysis for issues and crisis management. She is an expert in both creating change using social media as well as managing conflict when it comes to your page or community. She’ll facilitate and share her conflict know-how!

Let’s discuss and share:

What’s the difference between a troll and someone who disagrees with your philosophy?

Is conflict ever useful or even desirable for your community?

When should you block, ban or delete? How do you decide?

What strategies can you put in place to keep the peace when unexpected disagreements break out?

Are there topics that are off-limits for your community? Why?

How to tell the difference between healthy dissent and destructive conflict.
