SIOP 2016: Follow #SIOP16 and #SIOPChat In Anaheim or Away


by SIOP Administrative Office

Social media is playing an ever larger role in work life. The Pew Research Center estimates that 65 percent of adults now use social networking and says that online technology allows people to work more, to be more flexible about their work hours, and to expand the number of people outside their company with whom they communicate. 

I-O Psychologists are just like everyone else in this regard, and SIOP has been working diligently for the last several years to leverage social media for the good of the profession and the organization. Once again this year, you can follow the conference hashtag, #SIOP16, on Twitter and Facebook. SIOP will be posting updates, photos, and reminders while attendees share their own observations and photos.

SIOP’s Electronic Communications Committee, chaired by Tilman Sheets, is also hosting two editions of SIOP Chat at the conference. The first, to be held Wednesday, April 13 at 4 pm (PT), features tips from SIOP’s Communications Portfolio Officer Alex Alonso on “Getting the Most Out of #SIOP16.” On Saturday, April 16, Conferences and Program Officer Evan Sinar will recap the convention at 2:30 pm (PT) with “#SIOP16: the Evolution.”

To make it easier to follow the action, SIOP has created portals that follow the #SIOPchat and #SIOP16 hashtags. Follow the #SIOPchat sessions on the SIOPchat page. You can see all tweets branded with the #SIOP16 hashtag here

The official SIOP Twitter account is SIOPtweets. Follow us for breaking news and information, useful articles, and ongoing conversations, all year round.

We hope you will join us in using these platforms. Doing so will help raise the visibility of I-O and highlight the important role I-O psychologists can play in the workplace.
