Social Media Toolbox

As a new Cancer Information Service becomes comfortable with providing base level of services, the next natural step for many organizations is to utilize social media in order to promote awareness of the CIS and connect more directly with their target community of users. This toolbox was developed to help CIS agencies learn more about how social media can be a tool for growth, and the tools below are designed to provide guidance for making decisions about the best social media channels to use for a target population and how to develop materials to use with a social media plan.
