At the core of social media is the need to be social. Join your Twitter-buddies and other colleagues to share tips-and-techniques, questions, ideas, etc. Remember to bring your mobile device, so you can tweet, browse, or download new apps as we talk.
If you don’t have accounts on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn or need other help on getting started, members of the local social media community will be available to help you. Come with questions and leave with answers. If you would like to setup your account on your own laptop or smartphone, please bring it with you (and bring the power cord too!)
Refreshments will be served and mingling between social media “rookies” and “rock stars” will be encouraged.
RSVPs are not required, but are requested to firstname.lastname@example.org or 315-443-2911.
The Syracuse Technology Garden is located at 235 Harrison St. (at the corner of S. Warren St.). Street and lot parking is available.
Or seriously, learn to be urban and grab a bus or find a meter. People who can't find parking piss me off.
The Social Media Tweetup: For Rookies to Rock Stars is a pre-conference of the BizBuzz Social Media Conference on Thursday, May 27 at the OnCenter in Syracuse. Register for the conference at http://www.syracusebizbuzz.com.
