June 30, 2016 – Social media is a very powerful tool that will be employed to increase the reach of the Joint Annual Meeting (JAM) and engage attendees. We will be publicizing JAM updates, events, and personalities across multiple social media platforms: Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. In addition, the JAM App will also be used to share information.
Twitter’s strength lies in it being the ultimate real-time tool. We will use Twitter to broadcast quick updates and reminders throughout JAM.

Pictures transcend words. Follow the 2016 JAM Instagram account for updates throughout the meeting and to share your pictures.
JAM is increasing its social media presence with the launch of an Instagram account instagram.com/2016jointannualmeeing/, hashtag #2016jam. The debut, set for Tuesday, July 19, will coincide with a challenge to those attending the JAM Opening BBQ to post their cutest, silliest pictures using the hashtag #2016jambbq. The Instagrammer whose picture receives the most likes will win a gift bag containing great American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) swag. Voting will end Thursday, July 21 at 6:00 pm. The winner will be announced the following day at the ASAS Business Meeting from 9:30 to 10:30 am.
