The Facebook page can also be used to upload results of the challenges, Sinbad’s travel, pictures etc that you want to share.
Note that traffic on this page is monitored by the WJJT throughout the event.
Skype and Google Talk
Services like Skype and Google Talk allow you to communicate with other Scouts with audio and video. How to find a Scout to talk to? Have a look in the JOTA-JOTI sign-up list on www.world-jotajoti.info, find a Scout groups active on e.g. Skype and invite them to meet in Skype or Google Talk.
Use of other social media Flicker, Youtube, Instagram etc.
The internet has many social media that can be used during the JOTA-JOTI weekend for a variety of purposes. And it is great fun to do so. Please make sure that you supervise your Scouts at all times when using these media. WOSM and Scoutlink are monitoring the IRC channels and the official Facebook page, but no others during the weekend.
