Our “Here for People Affected by Crime” campaign aims to ensure that everyone in Scotland knows who Victim Support Scotland is and how we can help them if they need us. Social media (Facebook and Twitter) is an important way to spread the word.
What is a Thunderclap?
A Thunderclap is a way to get our message heard on Social Media by allowing a single message to be mass-shared, so it rises above the background chatter. Our supporters agreed to have our Thunderclap message posted on their Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr account at 12 Noon on Monday 22nd February 2016. Because hundreds of our supporters did the same thing, people saw the same message posted by lots of people, and noticed the message, understood its importance and Spread The Word.
