Changes to Social Media for CID

About CIDAs a result of the efforts of Min He over the past 6 months to learn about the followers of the Center for Intercultural Dialogue on various social media, it has become obvious that there is very little activity on either Google+ or Pinterest, with only a few dozen followers on each site (compared to the hundreds on LinkedIn and Twitter, and over a thousand who are currently members of the CID Facebook group). The CID accounts on both of these platforms will therefore be terminated as of April 15, 2017.

social media logosPlease subscribe to CID on any of the other social media platforms: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, or YouTube, either by clicking on these links, or the logos on the right side of the page.

Or subscribe directly to WordPress via email (through the link on the top right of any page). Once you have done that, you can “manage” your subscription, choosing whether you want a daily or weekly update sent to your inbox. (As a general clarification: CID does not manage an email list; each subscriber manages their own preferences.)

If you have any difficulties and want to talk to a person, just email me directly.

My apologies for the time these changes will require.

Wendy Leeds-Hurwitz, Director
Center for Intercultural Dialogue
