Avoiding Event Social Media Mistakes

Social media is an integral part of today’s events. From Twitter to Facebook, Instagram to Pinterest, social media has become an important tool for event planners. It’s paramount that event planners know how to plan around or fix mistakes on social media to avoid derailing an event.

Event Manager Blog shared a list on how to fix 20 mistakes events make on social media. The list includes:
  • Hire a dedicated person to social media. A dedicated social media worker helps you get back to worrying about the bigger picture.
  • Address your mentions! Ignoring mentions can spiral out of control, so ensure that you have a plan in place to address any complaints.
  • Use hashtags wisely. Clearly communicate what the hashtag is for, and use it only for its specific purpose.


These are just a few of the ways to avoid some common event social media mistakes. How else can you avoid these mistakes?
