As with anything, social media has positives and negatives. On the bright side social media, especially at CONA, is an easy way to share our ideas and opinions with many people. At CONA social media allows delegates to see what others have done, are doing, and will do. It also allows delegates to connect with others, to combine proposals, or get advice for their proposals.
