Lanyrd via Twitter

Writing about web page

I've added a conference to Lanyrd and at first I thought that this was a bit of a waste of time as my Twitter search was rubbish.

I am very glad to say that I was wrong.

Once I added the conference LumeNet 2012, I added some of the companies/institutions that were involved. This resulted in finding lots of people in the lighting industry to follow on Twitter.

It's always worth having a go at these things just in case you can find real value in doing it - after all no knowledge is a waste of time.

    Glad to hear Lanyrd was successful for you! I’m quite new to it myself but can see it’s potentially an incredibly powerful tool, though unfortunately there seem to be very few people in my discipline using it at present. I guess like anything social media related, the more people using it, the more useful it’ll be and the more people will use it in future!

    I couldn’t see any relevant conferences on there either – I learned of LumeNet through Sheffield University (the host of the event) and just used it as an example to complete Thing 11. If more people used Lanyrd, I think that this would be a great way to find conferences to attend (this is the only relevant one that I’ve been able to find so far) and to advertise your own. Perhaps its use will grow in time.
