#ELSS2016 Social Media Tips

Whether you're attending the IIE Engineering Lean & Six Sigma Conference 2016 or catching the highlights on the Web at home or work, we encourage you to share your thoughts about the conference, comment on speakers and sessions, and bring the topics you discuss during the conference to the online social media community. This is a great opportunity to learn from others outside of the session rooms and to network with fellow professionals within the industry.

We encourage you to take time to share your content on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram as well as other social media sites you regularly visit online. The content you post - whether it's simply tweets or short posts, photos, and/or video content - will be shared throughout the IIE social network and may also appear on the IIE website or in an upcoming issue of Industrial Engineer magazine.

Here are a few suggestions* to be aware of as you participate in social media activity tied to the 2016 conference:


  • Tweets about this conference should be tagged with #ELSS2016, so include the tag in your tweets.
  • You have 140 characters to write with per tweet (including links and tags), so do your best to describe each element of your experience in a single post. But feel free to tweet as often as you like throughout the conference.
  • If you'd like for IIE to consider retweeting your post, then tag them directly by including @IIEnet anywhere in the tweet (not necessary to include "please retweet" or "please RT" in the post).

  • Post comments, photos and video on the IIE fan page and/or the IIE group page (IIE will be posting conference content exclusive on its Facebook group page throughout the conference week).
