SMi’s 5th annual conference on Social Media within Defence and Military takes place next week and will include a special guest address from military engagement pioneers, Israel Defense Forces (IDF).
The IDF is active on 30 platforms in six languages including Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram, and has been approached by several western countries, keen to learn from its expertise.
The presentation entitled: Communicating Conflict – Social Media Challenges on the Battlefield, will be delivered by an Official IDF Spokesman, who will provide a comprehensive overview of the IDF’s current social media presence and activities. With a focus on cutting edge social media strategy, the keynote address will offer guidance on building a strong organic following in support of war/crisis, and look ahead into the IDF’s future digital strategy.
