GSN’s social media choices
23 January 2012 Print This Article

Gay Star News aims to deliver quality journalism worldwide 24-7 and gain coverage for important lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues. Social media provides a platform for us to achieve this – building awareness and interest in what we do and consequently allowing you to get involved in this exciting venture.

Twitter @gaystarnews has received a great response since going live, building followers by the day and allows for an open dialogue that we at GSN love to encourage.

Our page provides rolling news and tweets around the clock from our worldwide team. Regular discussions based on the news of the day and relevant trending topics feature.

Gaining a supportive tweet from Stephen Fry – twitter's most influential user, is an achievement we are particularly proud of. 

Facebook We'll be using our Facebook fan page to give you the latest updates and get you involved in all we do. This is your page to share, like and comment on our news, pictures and videos.

With competition opportunities, a fan of the week winner, and regular polls for discussion – it really does encourage your involvement.

LinkedIn Our LinkedIn group provides GSN with tremendous professional value.  We will be using our page to connect members, gain industry contacts, and share our business features.

Google+ With the arrival of Google+ onto the social scene, GSN has jumped on board and entered into the world of circles.

As this platform is still in development, so is how we use this page. But get involved and share our stories with your +1 contacts and join us in our circle.

YouTube At GSN we like to add that something extra to our stories – which is where You Tube videos comes into play. Share our videos with friends, family, and the world.

Weibo – To illustrate just how international we are at GSN, we even have a Weibo page! For those of you not familiar with this platform, its a hybrid of Facebook and Twitter; one of the most poplar sites in China. Join us for our latest 'weibs'

We look forward to connecting with you on one, if not all of the above.
