Listen to how social media was integrated into the Urbana 12 conference with Adam Jeske, who directed and coordinated the 14-member Social Media Squad at the Urbana Missions Conference to actively engaged 16,000+ participants along with others off-site via a livestream video feed and other social feeds too — nearly 40,000 tweets on the event hashtag (#u12), 6,400+ photos posted on Twitter and Instagram, 10,000+ viewers on the livestream. I (host DJ Chuang) got to serve on that Social Media Squad too, and wanted you to hear first-hand from the mastermind that orchestrated it all.

Adam is the Director of New Media and Associate Director of Communications at InterVarsity Christian Fellowship.
