Social media and how we can use it to make more people aware

On a twitter poll which we recently conducted, 87% of respondents said that they had fibromyalgia, with 13% not having it. What does this tell us? It tells us that the overwhelming majority of people who interact with us have fibromyalgia. And quite rightly – we are a fibromyalgia charity after all. But what it shows is the potential we have to reach new people. In order to raise awareness, we need to reach out to those who don’t have the condition or who have little or no knowledge of it. There are numerous ways we can get that awareness, and social media plays a massive part in it. Whether you like it or not, social media is increasingly becoming a massive part of people’s daily lives. And it is because of this, that we can use it to our advantage. Taking 30 seconds out of your day to make an engagement with the charity can benefit us massively – if everyone does one small action it can all add up. Liking, sharing and commenting on content can help our posts reach more people and in turn make more people become aware of fibromyalgia.

As someone who doesn’t have fibromyalgia, and someone who didn’t know about it before joining the charity, I feel strongly that social media can help us increase that much needed awareness. If someone doesn’t have fibro, or know anyone with it, then there is little out there that would make them aware of the condition. We want to change that – and with your help, we believe we can.
