Unofficial Official Guide to SAS Global Forum - The 'social' connection


When I first attended SAS Global Forum, you had to wait until you arrived at the conference to get connected with other attendees.   There wasn’t a good way to find out in advance who was going to attend or what they were interested in.   And if you weren’t attending for some reason, you had to wait until after the conference to find out what went on.  Thankfully, that's not the case anymore!  

Now you can easily connect with other attendees before you head to Orlando.  You can also use social media channels during the conference to participate virtually and find out what’s going on, in real-time.  Then after it’s all over - and it always goes by so quickly - you can continue to stay connected via the same channels.   One really cool thing about social media is that it is creating a community of SAS users who keep in touch and stay connected at all times, with all things related to SAS Global Forum.

Social Media Channels
Use these channels for two-way instant communication.  

  • Twitter - Get fast and frequent updates about SAS Global Forum @SASGLOBALFORUM using the hashtag #SASGF12.
  • Facebook - Become a fan, get updates and connect with colleagues from around the globe.
  • LinkedIn - Join the discussion and connect with peers, presenters and fellow attendees before and during the conference.
  • SAS Users Groups Blog - Keep on reading and commenting!  You obviously know this one already.  Watch for more video content during the conference.

As always, thanks for reading the blog.  If you’re still holding out participating in the other channels, don’t be shy.  Jump on in and join the community.
