The U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance, which works to earn consumer trust in food and agriculture, shared a training on using the engAGe app with the National Corn Growers Association Consumer Engagement Action Team. Now, NCGA encourages members and ag supporters to download the app and help advocate for ag on social media. By downloading the app, users can start more consumer conversations about how today’s food is grown and raised.
What is engAGe?
engAGe allows users to easily stay abreast of current news in agriculture and amplify relevant content with a simple click. The app presents users with a news feed where users can publish stories and posts to their own social media networks with the swipe of a thumb.
With engAGe, users can easily share content on a higher level. engAGe integrates with the most popular social media platforms and distributes content to your followers with a simple click. It doesn’t matter if a user is behind a computer, walking down a street, or in a field, engAGe makes it simple to share a united voice, and speak for agriculture. engAGe also allows users to share their own content in the news feed.
How to engAGe (and download the app)
In both the app store and Google Play, search for “Dynamic Signal”. Once you download and open the app, the app will prompt you to enter the engAGe community code. The community code is: engage (not case sensitive). To join on a desktop, or simply sign up online, visit: engage.fooddialogues.com.
