If you are not familiar with MeWe.com, you are in for a treat. MeWe is a delightful social network offering a number of useful features for collaborating online. It may seem a bit simplistic at first, but you will soon realize there is a lot more to MeWe. One reason MeWe is so special is that it doesn’t stalk you or bombard you with commercials and other junk. Your privacy is protected there.
The image above is a screenshot of the Storytellers Studio group’s home page. In addition to the group’s timeline, you will also find an impressive group chat feature that supports both text and voice chats. This will be useful for Q&A sessions and other events. In the Files section you will find several useful how-to documents along with project ideas.
To join us, your first step is to become a MeWe.com member. MeWe.com is accessible using your web browser. The example above shows you what MeWe looks like in the browser. There are also apps available for iOS and Android devices and phones. Once your account is set up, take a look around to get a feel for the place. The easiest way to find Storytellers Studio is to use the search box at the top of the screen. Once you request to join the group, the adminstrator will authorize your access. You will also see Storytellers Studio listed in your My Groups panel. Feel free to take a look around. You can add comments and/or ask questions on any post published in the groups timeline. Stop by the Files section (found in the menu bar just below the group graphic) and check out the documents posted there. MeWe supports text, voice and even video chats. We plan to put that to good use.
The Studio blog has an important role in group management. This is where most of the news, resource options and other information will be published here and “announced” in the group timeline. Both elements work together to help you get started in your storytelling efforts. We hope to see you soon at Storytellers Studio!
