QR Codes can be used with a mobile device like a smart
phone or a tablet that has access top the internet
The device must have an QR Code reader (also called
scanner) app installed

most devices
NOTE: You should NOT have to pay money or give
information about yourself when selecting and installing a
QR Code reader or scanner

Hashtags vs Mentions





Hashtags have # in front of them (no spaces allowed)
Hashtags are like signposts to content
Mentions start with @ followed by a person or organization’s twitter
name (no spaces allowed)
Mentions help connect people who tweet (tweeple?)
Mentions are like sign posts to other people who tweet
51
#COABE13
51
Hashtags are Ephemeral



Hashtags lose their value if they are not used often.
If using a hashtag for a short term event it’s a good idea to archive
the content so it can be found later
