Build Excitement for Your High School Reunion Using Social Media

More ideas on using social media to build excitement for your high school reunion from varsityreunions.com.

Most everyone agrees using an image is the best way to share content across social media, especially when using Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Since we know many reunion committees rely on these platforms to share information about their high school reunion, we created postable graphics you may download and use to build excitement for the event. You may also want to include the images in your e-mail messaging to classmates.

Try posting a question once or twice a week as you lead up to your reunion celebration weekend.  It is a great way to spark the reminiscing and storytelling your classmates are looking for at your high school reunion.

 

Using Social Media Graphics to Promote Your High School Reunion

Social media ideas to build excitement as you plan your high school reunion from varsityreunions.com.

If you are part of a high school reunion committee, we know there are probably a hundred items on your to do list – working with the reunion venue, updating the guest list, scanning yearbook photos, managing online registrations, designing the invitation, and on and on – all which fit neatly under the reunion planning umbrella.

We know it is a lot of work.

After all, we do it professionally because so many classmates don’t want to.

So, we developed a new resource to help!

Similar to our How to Use Facebook to Promote Your High School Reunion blog post from last year, we created social media graphics designed to increase classmate interaction before the reunion. You may use the graphics on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or in your e-mail messaging to ask questions about the reunion, spark memories, or to just get your classmates talking as you lead up to the big event.

You are welcome to download these free graphics and post as often as you’d like. We hope you and your classmates have fun answering the questions as you reconnect before your reunion.

Check back next week when we’ll post more. If you have any ideas for a fun question to ask, share in the comments below!

Fun Conversation Starter for Your High School Reunion

This is a fun idea for your high school reunion. As a reunion icebreaker, post this question to see how your classmates might answer:

Or, change the question to:  Before our next reunion, I want to…

How interesting to find out what your classmates want to accomplish in their lifetimes. Be sure to take pictures of the responses so you can share on Facebook or on your reunion website after the reunion. And you’ll want copies to include 5 or 10 years later at your next reunion event.

There are a few ways you can create a question and answer board:

  1. Hang poster board around the room with the question and appropriate lines for the answers. You may want to leave space for classmates to also write in their name.
  2. Those large post-it self-stick papers you see at conferences would also work well. Pre-write the question on multiple pages and place the post-it pad on an easel. As the paper fills up with answers, take off the top sheet and stick it to the wall. By the end of the evening, you’ve added to your reunion decorations with personal responses from your classmates.
  3. An old chalkboard or large dry erase board would also work well. Maybe the venue hosting your reunion has something in their office that you may use or rent for a small fee.

If you want to collect the answers before the reunion, ask the question on the reunion registration form. Use the responses as part of a slide show, or print out and place on cocktail tables around the room. This would be a great conversation starter during the evening.

Informal icebreakers are a fun addition at a high school reunion. Check our our Activities and Icebreakers Pinterest board for even more ideas.
