Guidelines for Use
BAW graphics may be used for
educational and informational purposes in relation to Brain Awareness Week and
information found on dana.org. These graphics may
not be used to endorse commercial products or services, nor to solicit funds.
Use of BAW images does not indicate
any form of endorsement or approval from the Dana Foundation.
References to BAW on Twitter have rapidly grown in the last several years. We
follow what’s being said, but to do that we need to be able to find you, so
please use the official BAW hashtag, #brainweek, and join the conversation! You can follow us too, at @dana_fdn.
Helpful hint: Tweets with photos do
best. Consider using a photo from your event or a photo of the event poster.
Awareness Week has its very own Facebook page; check us out for posting ideas or
to share one of ours. We highlight event ideas, free materials, ways to get
involved, and news about the brain.
Helpful hints: Unlike Twitter, on Facebook
you aren’t limited to 140 characters to relay your message. While this gives
you some added room to describe your event, for example, don’t make your post
too long! Lengthy paragraphs can look overwhelming and run the risk of being
cut off in the newsfeed display.
Use eye-catching photos and videos to
draw people to your post.
Be sure to respond to comments on
your post–people value interaction on Facebook.
Don’t have your own video to share? Use ours! We’ve created a short video that explains Brain Awareness Week and encourages people to get involved.
Helpful hint: The Dana Foundation YouTube channel houses hundreds of brain-themed videos, from recordings of our own events, to expert talks on more than 85 topics. These videos are easy to share on your own social media directly from YouTube.
