Go here to see all of your social media platforms and how we use each of them to keep you in the know about Scouting: http://www.utahscouts.org/be-social-with-us/
Utah National Parks Council utilizes many social media platforms: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Linkedin, Flickr, Google +, YouTube, Blog, you name it. Each platform has a specific purpose in Scouting and is used on a daily basis to reach out to those who are in the Scouting community and to even those outside of the Scouting community. As a whole, our social media platforms are all meant to target the culture of our audience, show different perspectives, display the morals of Scouting, share the latest Scouting videos, engage Scouting discussions, send updates and news, and provide helpful information so that you can succeed in Scouting.
You don’t have to be apart of Scouting to participate in the Council’s social media. You don’t even have to be apart of the Council. Anyone can like, follow, pin, post, tweet uplifting, helpful, and informative items to each platform. Want to share your Scout Camp experience to others outside of your Council? No problem.
