Lions SMiLE | Social Media Directory


SMiLE originated in the preparation of the 2012 58th Brussels European Forum Social Media seminars. During these preparations we found it hard to get information about European Lions using Social Media successfully. Information and guidelines on Social Media are scattered and knowledge on initiatives to start using Social Media in Lions is not shared. We felt the need to safeguard and share the gathered information and contacts for the use of all Lions.

During the 58th Lions Europa Forum in Brussels 2012 and with the endorsement of the Social Media seminar attendants, the Lions European Council accepted the proposal to create a ‘European web platform for all information about Lions Social Media’ named SMiLE.

Lions Clubs International Perspective on Social Media
LCI is enthusiastic about social media because experience shows that it can help clubs connect with people who share their desire to serve and who care about causes they support. Moreover, social media can enable clubs to speed up communications among club members and their communities. LCI is increasing its use of social media for the same reasons. By "social media," we mean new Web 2.0 applications that let people to share digital text, graphics, audio and video content and to express themselves by commenting on content or others' comments. Some well-known social media platforms are: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, YouTube, MySpace, Foursquare and Orkut, as well as blogs. Many forums and websites have social media features, too. Both of the latter have existed for decades, but social media is making them more popular. Websites are social if they enable comments on their content.
