SocialLight Guidelines

CyberCOM Socials are fun-filled hour long events. Participants can dial-in toll free, or attend online in a CyberCOM VoiceChat meeting room (includes text and VideoChat).

Note: Please contact us if you need any help. We appreciate your efforts and hope you enjoy the VIP status and rewards that all of our SocialLights earn!

Getting Started

It all begins with planning your event. Get creative! You may want to search online for quizzes or novelty activities. For brain teasers and other games you can use the break off rooms to divide into team. You can also check the Activity Board for suggestions posted by other SocialLights. You’ll need to decide on a: (1) theme; (2) title (should reflect the theme); (3) brief description, including the activities you’re planning (example: A MoonLight Social could take place on a full moon with the activity being a moon sign quiz; (4) date and time.

Note: Do not host a CyberCOM Social to advertise products or services, although you’re welcome to share a link to your website/blog/media or other resources.

Schedule Your CyberCOM Social

Step 1: Create a Sign Up post.

Click the link above. When the page opens, click “New Topic” (the tab is in the top right corner). The format for Sign Up posts is:

> For the “Topic Subject” enter the title of your social.
> Click inside the text editor and enter the day, date, time, and ZONE. (Example - Monday, March 7th, 8 p.m., ET)
   Note: For continuity, always use Eastern Time (Time Zone Converter)
> Click "Enter" twice on your keypad, then provide a description.
   Tip: You may want to include a photo to make your post more inviting. It will be easier if you add the photo first.
> Click "Post New Topic" (bottom left) and then copy the url (web address) to include in your Calendar post.

Step 2: Post your CyberCOM Social on the Calendar.

> Access the Calendar (the tab will appear below the CyberCOM banner).
> Scroll to the section titled "Select Action" and choose the "CyberCOM Socials" Calendar.
> Click “Add New Event”, then “Ranged Event” (second option down). Enter your details in the sections provided.
> For the time zone, if it's not already selected, choose "(GMT-5:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)", then enter the time.
   (Make sure the AM/PM is correct.)
> Don't forget to include the Sign Up post url!

Note: Plan ahead. It could take up to 48-hours for a CyberCOM Social to be reviewed. When it appears on the Calendar an attendance link will be added. To edit your Calendar post, click on your event and choose "Edit Event" from the "Event Options" drop down menu.

Help Spread The Word

Now all you need is participants! Invite your friends on social media and let them know that it’s free to register on CyberCOM (but not necessary to participate). Encourage them to arrive 15-minutes early if they're going to tune in online, so they can get familiar with our VoiceChat technology. A toll free number for support will be provided from the access page, along with all the International dial-in numbers.

If two days prior to your scheduled CyberCOM Social there's not at least two participants signed up, please either change
the date or delete your Sign Up and Calendar posts (a link is on the Calendar's "Event Options" dropdown menu).
