As revealed by our Kingdom Social Media Officer, THL Sumayya al Ghaziyya, on the latest episode of AE Live, the Kingdom of Æthelmearc now has two new communication outlets: Instagram and Discord!

Our Instagram Social Media Deputy, THL Astridr Vigaskegg, writes:

Follow us on Instagram @scaaethelmearc!

Joining Instagram is easy! You can download the app on your phone or tablet through the App Store for iPhone or iPad and the Play Store for Android. If you don’t have a mobile device, you can simply visit instagram.com. Since Instagram is now owned by Facebook, if you already have a Facebook account, you can simply click “Login with Facebook.” Otherwise you can sign up with an email address.

Follow us @scaaethelmearc and tag us in your SCA-related posts with any of these hashtags:

Wait… what exactly is Discord?

*It’s part communications app, part social media portal. It’s similar to Skype or Slack, but much more versatile, with an easy-to-use interface. With 250 million users, it’s widely used by the gaming community, growing quickly into a way to coordinate all kinds of hobbyist communities. Discord supports video calls, voice chats, and texts, and each interest server (like our Kingdom server) can have many sub channels. Try it out today! (And look for other SCA communities on Discord, – there are lots – like the “The Known World”, “SCA Bardic Social”, and even one for our own Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands)
