ASTM International Establishes a Presence on Social Media Networks

W. Conshohocken, PA | Posted on December 8th, 2010

ASTM International has recently established a presence on some popular social media sites, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. These social media platforms provide another outlet for users and stakeholders to receive the latest news about ASTM International and international standards activities.

The official ASTM International Facebook page provides followers with the latest news about standards development within ASTM's 142 technical committees, as well as information about publications, meetings and more, with direct links to the ASTM website. Currently, more than 1,200 "fans" keep up with ASTM through Facebook. A separate Facebook page for ASTM students features news about ASTM student memberships, awards, paper contests, and information about standards in the classroom.

More than 450 users currently follow @ASTMIntl on Twitter. ASTM tweets include all of the latest headline news from ASTM with links to the ASTM site. We also tweet important information about upcoming meetings, training sessions, publications and other general ASTM news. As with Facebook, there is also a student presence on Twitter, with the username @ASTMStudentFans.

The ASTM channel on YouTube, www.youtube.com/ASTMIntl, features informational videos from ASTM, including membership and student videos, as well as specialized committee videos that highlight a particular ASTM technical committee or standards activity. Users can view several uploaded videos that cover a variety of standards development subjects and easily share the videos with colleagues and friends.

ASTM's presence in social media is another way to reach an even broader audience of stakeholders interested in the standardization process, and to share important standards development news with the world.

For questions about ASTM's presence in social media, please contact Erin Brennan, PR Manager, ASTM International
