HKKMS10 – Making KM Productive – Using Social Media for Conference Promotion – USM1

This is a run down of conference announcements, postings and taggings about the HKKMS (Hong Kong Knowledge Management Society) & KMRC (Knowledge Management Research Centre) KM Conference 2010, Making KM Productive, 30 March 2010, Hong Kong.

Tagging
Tagging is a way of grouping content across social media applications like Twitter, Delicious, Flickr, etc. There were a few days of discussion among David Gurteen, Patrick Lambe, Dave Snowden, Kim Sbarcea and Eric Tsui on what made a good tag. Shortness is key so it is easy to remember and doesn’t take up much space in Twitter post. Uniqueness is important so it isn’t likely to interfere or be confused with content in the future. Three different tags were proposed and HKKMS10 was chosen because it was short, unique and easy to remember. If you are interested in tagging see here and here

Twitter – #HKKMS10 – if you tweet about the conference put this hash tag on it

Delicious – HKKMS10 – if you come across any websites related to the conference tag it

Flickr – HKKMS10 – if you upload photos about the conference tag them

This tag can be used anywhere tagging is used ~ StumbleUpon, Technoratic, Yahoo!, Youtube, Picasa, and many others

Current postings can be seen below
You can find all of these postings by searching the tag HKKMS10 in Delicious
Some of these links only work if you are member of the site/group

The views of Baoman’s blog pages have been about 3 times more than normal for the 7 day period, 3 Feb – 9 Feb. I’ve received positive feedback from people that I don’t know personally. People are looking for the conference website so they can register.
