Operators Are (Not) Standing By
About a month ago, Caster Communications’ Twitter account was “temporarily suspended”. Considering CEDIA Expo 2019 is on the way (or in full swing as of this releasing), losing an outlet like Twitter can be devastating for any company. And if Twitter’s own CEO can get their account hacked, shouldn’t you work towards keeping your own social media fronts safe? On this episode of AVSocial, we talk to Caster Communciations themselves about what happened, how they dealt with the issue, and what you can do in case of losing access to your important social media tools.

AVSocial was created within the first year of AVNation’s creation. Originally hosted by George Tucker, the hosts today are two veteran audiovisual industry marketers; Dawn Meade and Kelly Perkins.
Dawn Meade began her AV career at a local Maryland commercial integrator. She obtained her CTS and learned the various aspects of the integration side of AV. She is an InfoComm and AVIXA instructor, teaching classes on subjects ranging from social media and marketing to encouraging women in STEM and the audiovisual industry.
Kelly Perkins has been recognized as one of the finest minds in AV marketing. She has won the AVIXA Young AV Professional award. Perkins has been a marketer for manufacturers with Vaddio, integrators for AVI Systems, and industry associations with NSCA. She has also earned her CTS and is instrumental in mentoring other women in the audiovisual industry.
AVSocial is a monthly program that takes one subject and breaks it down discussing the hows and whys of marketing challenges in the AV industry. Guests offer their advice and opinions in a round table discussion. If you would like to be a panelist on AVSocial you can email Tim Albright at firstname.lastname@example.org
