Setting Up Social Media
There are dozens of social media platforms out there but the main ones to help promote your project are Facebook and Twitter.
Both are very easy to set up and are an easy way for you to share information. It's a good idea to designate someone to be in charge of your social media channels to make sure they are being monitored and you respond to any comments. As well as Facebook and Twitter you could also consider setting up a profile on Instagram if you have strong images.
Here are some step-by-step guides to setting up a profile on social media.
