Social Media Day 2010

June 17, 2010


June 30th has been named ‘Social Media Appreciation Day’ for people around the world to discuss and celebrate the use of social media. Mashable has teamed up with Meetup.com to set up meeting places around the world for social media users to meet IN PERSON.

At first this sounds a little creepy, isn’t social media for computer use? To network with people you could not meet?

But the more I thought about it the cooler it sounds. One day where we do it the old fashion way. Go to meetup.com/mashable to find out where your local meeting will be and who will be attending. LA Social Media Day is having a meetup in Culver City and raising money for Hollywood Arts, a school for homeless and foster care children in Hollywood to experience the arts.  If you participate do not forget to blog/tweet/post how it goes!

    Hey Alicia! I follow your tweets on Twitter and wanted to stop by your blog! Too funny you posted about the meet ups as being creepy lol I went to a Boston based tweet up on Thursday and it was so much fun! I think as long as the events are organized so that you’re meeting with people of similar interests, it can be awesome! I chatted with lots of fabulous bloggers 🙂 did you end up going to one?
