TH36 Global Approaches to Using Social Media to Keep the Public Informed about Nuclear Safety
Social media is a global communications phenomenon that allows for the dissemination of content quickly, inexpensively, easily and with the capacity to magnify information as it enables conversation. The objective is to demonstrate the advantages of using social media to enhance openness and transparency and to explore some of the challenges inherent in communicating about technical topics using these tools. Nuclear safety communicators will provide examples of successes as well as lessons learned from their experiences with social media and discuss how multilateral engagement on the use of social media has facilitated the sharing of best practices. Communication is always a topic of high interest among technical experts, so the question and answer portion of the session is likely to generate a lively conversation.
