Farmers are tapping into social media services more frequently, especially since the weekly streaming conversation called AgChat was founded on Twitter last year. As many offices closed Friday for holidays, farmers launched the AgChat Foundation online. Hundreds of people talked about the new website and the mission to empower farmers and ranchers to connect communities through social media platforms.

The AgChat Foundation has four program areas focused on social media:
  • Agvocacy 2.0 Training: Educate farmers through basic, mid-level & expert training to move mindsets up the technology ladder.
  • Strategic Agvocacy Coordination: Empower agriculture's voice through coordinated industry-wide efforts.
  • Data Analysis: Provide tools to assist agvocates with targeted community efforts.
  • Technology Scholarships: Equip farmers with infrastructure to enable full use of social media.
