At last year’s sitting of the DENOSA National Executive Committee (NEC) in November, a committee that looks after the day-to-day running of the organisation, it was decided that the current DENOSA group with no code of conduct was getting more detrimental to the organisation than building it.
And the setting up of a new DENOSA National Page with rules and regulations with more features for the organisation’s communications division to make use of was mandated. Subsequently, the announcement for the New DENOSA National Page was made on the DENOSA group on the social network in December 2012, with the 2nd of January being the day the page will go live.
DENOSA would like to invite members to join the page, as it is now ready for all members. All you need to do to join the page is to log on Facebook and go to the search section and type in DENOSA National Page. As soon as it appears, click ‘like’, and you are a member. This is unlike the group set-up where each member has to be first accepted by the administrator. All members have carte blanche to post messages on the wall, provided it is within acceptable laws of the page.
Features of the page that will assist DENOSA’s communication division:
Statistics: The page gives insight and statistics on the reach of each message that is sent via the platform. For example, the page gives the breakdown statistics on gender ratio making up the page population, areas, age ranges.
These tools, including the messages box which allows members to pose personal questions on their membership status and outstanding issues, will assist the communications division in its drive to provide many platforms to communicate with members.
This arrangement will also be implemented in provincial pages, so that members in provinces could enjoy the same plethora of communication channels with many features. Take some time and tour the page around.
The other social media platform that DENOSA would like to invite its members on is our Twitter account. Our Twitter handle is: @DENOSAORG
