ABI’S GROWING SOCIAL MEDIA PRESENCE PROVIDES MEMBERS AND THE PUBLIC WITH A NEW FORUM FOR BANKRUPTCY NEWS AND EVENTS

September 30, 2011, Alexandria, Va. — With nearly 2,700 LinkedIn members, over 1,000 Twitter followers and more than 500 Facebook fans, the American Bankruptcy Institute’s (ABI) social presence continues to expand to provide the most up-to-date bankruptcy information to practitioners and the public. In conjunction with an award-winning website, publications and educational materials, ABI’s social media channels provide members and the public an expedient way of delivering bankruptcy information on familiar networks for users to efficiently share.
 
ABI’s growth in social media supplements the organization’s mission to act as a forum for its members and the public to find out about and discuss important bankruptcy topics. Posts to ABI’s Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn networks deliver information on hot bankruptcy topics and news, updates on ABI events and programming, and the latest membership resources that ABI has to offer. ABI also utilizes social media to provide a social media forum for discussion at conferences and events by assigning and promoting a unique Twitter hashtag to each of its conferences. Additionally, ABI provides discounts and exclusive offers over all of its networks for its members and the public to save on ABI events and products.
