How to Use Social Media to Spread the Word About Scouts BSA

March 05, 2019

As the Scouts BSA program launches, it’s time to encourage everyone to use social media to spread the word about this incredible opportunity. 

You can start sharing right now with a few simple items like a Facebook frame, hashtags, and ready-to-post social content.

Be sure to use Scouts BSA social media images and videos from the BSA Brand Center, which have been tailored to social platforms, and direct people to Scouting.org/ScoutsBSA or BeAScout.org so they can learn more or join!

As a reminder, focus your social posts on the value of the programs of the Boy Scouts of America, and never criticize other youth activities/organizations or those who may not share your perspective.

FACEBOOK FRAME

Use the Scouts BSA “Scout Me In” Facebook profile frame to show off your excitement for the program.

HASHTAGS

Incorporate one or more of the hashtags below in short social posts about your troop’s open house, a positive personal Scouting experience, or why this opportunity is meaningful to your family.
