Social Media Team Applications
Original thread draft by Hiidoran
Updated 27 November 2017

Attention PC Members!
The Social Media Team is recruiting once again, and this time we're delighted to open up the floor to Instagram applications! As usual, we're also looking for hard working people to join our Facebook & Twitter teams, so if you're interested and want to know more, read on!

What is expected of a Social Media Teamster?

As one of our team members, you'll be expected to be enthusiastic and involved with many of our discussions in our staff areas, such as events for platforms, original content ideas (which we want to see way more of across our platforms) and even stuff like quizzes and polls to be ran for our audiences to participate in. Our social media channels have became way more than simply advertising the forums and Daily!

If accepted, you should be aiming to post up to SEVEN times a week on Twitter & THREE times a week on Facebook. As Instagram is a platform beginning to come into it's own, we simply want at least one post a day, but accepted teamsters for this platform will be working closely with Brendino to figure out what sort of things work for the platform and the like - a great opportunity!

As I mentioned earlier, we also buzz threads and content from Daily to our platforms, and we do this via The Buzz Panel. The little icon under posts allows the user base to buzz threads and ideas to us for our platforms, and it's our job to use our judgement and get the interesting content out! We also can gather content for ourselves by simply looking in forums ourselves, so we can never be short of things to buzz!

The following (1, 2, & 3) are good examples of fun, interesting buzz posts.

So if you're a driven individual who enjoys making interesting and exciting content, while wanting to advertise the forums and show of user content to a wider audience, this position could definitely be for you!
So what do you say?
If you're interested in applying to be a Facebook, Twitter or Instagram Team Member, fill out the below application and send it to me in a private message. Keep in mind I will not reply to your application unless I have a question/concern.
Because this is a PC Staff position there will be a selection process and a discussion on each interested candidate. We will be evaluating each applicant's forum activity, demeanor, and perceived ability to do the job applied for. For this reason part of your application includes the submission of examples of the type of work you would be contributing to the team.
Facebook, Twitter or Insta Application:

Which platform(s) are you interested in?:
Do you have availability to check the Buzz panel and Social Media Staff Lounge at least several times a week?:
Have you managed a Facebook, Twitter or Instagram group before? Have you made any posts on these platforms that you are proud of and think would show why you're suited for the position? Show examples!:
Please write up one sample buzz post per platform that you're applying for, including any images you'd use:
Why do you think you'd make a good addition to the team?:

When is the deadline?
We'll continue accepting applications until we find enough fitting applicants to bring onto the team, so that could range from a few days to a few weeks (or possibly longer). For that reason it's best to get your applications in as soon as possible!

Final notes:
We are looking for driven individuals to join our Social Media Team, ideally looking to intake 5-6 people this time around. The position is very fast paced at times and will require dedication and a lot of communication with other teams on the forums, so if you have other commitments that may get in the way - it might be possible this position isn't for you.

If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to PM/VM any of your SMT Senior Staff for more information. Good luck!

Remember that all applications must be sent by PM to me (Fletch). Please do not post them in this thread.

- SMT Senior Staff (Fletch, Brendino)
