Expert views and opinions on all aspects of communications

This week's chat

September 5, 2011 Welcome

By Andrew Thomas

Welcome to the new look CommsChat site. If you’ve been a regular participant over the past year you may not be reading this – it’s possible that you follow #CommsChat in TweetChat, or on TweetDeck, or maybe on Twitter itself. However, we realise that there are many comms professionals for whom social territories are not necessarily their native homeland. They want to go to one site, and stay there. So we’ve launched a twitter chat window within the CommsChat site. We also know there are many who want to carry on the conversation in a little more detail than 140 characters, so we’ve created a blogging portal.

You can also now sign up for updates on CommsChat, so that you can see who’s coming up and contribute your ideas, as well as receiving a reminder before each chat kicks off – so you won’t get that sinking, oh-no-I-missed-CommsChat feeling at 9.35pm.

There’s still more work to be done. Over the next few weeks you’ll see more functionality added to the site: the twitter chat window will have more features next week, and blogs will be tagged. From October we will increase the frequency to two #CommsChats a week, adding a second conversation at 14:00 on Wednesdays.

We hope you like the site. Obviously we realise this is your conversation. You make CommsChat happen each week, so we’d love your feedback. And, of course, your continued participation.

  1. Well done to the CommsChat team for a great relaunch and fresh looking site.

    Looking forward to seeing how the site and conversations evolve.

    Keep up the good work!
