Social Media Toolkit
Sharing critical melanoma information through social media! It has been scientifically demonstrated (using "big data" from mobile phone locators and credit card data) that the way information is disseminated throughout our society is by living social bridges — those individuals who learn information in a central location like work or school, and then carry it into their own social networks. Be a social advocate for our melanoma early detection campaign! Each and every one of you have a social network, people that you have the ability to positively influence with this campaign. You can let them know that they need to look at their skin and the skin of their loved ones and do something if they see something abnormal. "Talking up" the program with your friends and family members — and getting them to do the same — will make a huge difference in the success of the program." - Dr. Sancy Leachman, M.D., Ph.D., Chair, Department of Dermatology; Director, Melanoma Program, and 'General' in the War on Melanoma™
