Dear ISB Council members.

Vijay here, from TamilNadu Physical Education and Sports University, Chennai, India. I am a MPhil scholar in the Department of Sports BIomechanics and Kinesiology. I feel happy and honoured to be part of the Executive council as the appointed Social media representative. 

As the social media representative, I think we can use social media to interact with our audience, engage them in our activities and grow biomechanics into a global movement. Indeed, social media for NGOs is absolutely essential. Here are the key benefits of expanding our social media presence, we can:

1. Share our work to a global audience;

2. Grow interest in our cause;

3. Get to interact with members & supporters; and

4. Generate a global conversation!

Social media has become an integral part of our daily lives. Almost everybody who has access to the internet also has an account in one of the many social media networks that exist. For this reason, we should not pass the chance to use them for our causes as well. It has been 48 years since the formation of ISB and my first duty as social media representative I would like to get all our ISB social media handle (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn) verified as no organisation or Society linked to Biomechanics has a verified social media handle and I think the ISB should begin the trend. Would like to know the views and comments of fellow members. Make sure yo connect with ISB by liking our ISB Facebook Page, following our Instagram page, joining the Student Members Facebook Page, joining the LinkedIn group, and following ISB on Twitter. Please reach out to me with any comments, questions, suggestions, or just to talk.
