       If your mineral society does not have a facebook page...   It needs one! facebook is a great way to create events and advertise your show, your club meetings, and find new members. You can post pictures of your field trips etc. facebook.com/EFMLS-211759462889948/   

facebook Live

facebook Live is the best way to interact with viewers in real time.  During your Mineral & Gem show you can go LIVE and show your facebook viewers the beautiful and interesting things happening LIVE at your show.  You can post this live video to your mineral Society's facebook Page.  facebook.com/help/1636872026560015 

Instagram

Instagram is a cellphone or mobile device application. You can link your Instagram and facebook accounts together. Instagram is all about posting pictures of your mineral shows, field trips etc, video your society meetings and post them.

Show Coordinator

The Federation has a Show Coordinator who, when consulted, will help schedule shows so that nearby organizations will not schedule shows at the same time and be competing for the same audience. This of course, only works when the people who are putting on the shows check with the coordinator.  The Show Coordinator also sees that organization show information appears in the EFMLS News.
