YouTube and Twitter
As use and awareness of social media increases, Yorkshire MESMAC has developed its services to MSM in West and North Yorkshire by communicating with men via Twitter and by posting short films on YouTube. Both provide information on how to access Yorkshire MESMAC services, links to news stories, and up-to-date information, including current campaigns such as Count Me In. Not only are these social media a contemporary way ofcommunicating, they allow MESMAC to reach individuals who may not access traditional services or their local gay scene. This is especially important in an area with a large and dispersed rural population.
