Calling all social media types (and those interested) in Jacksonville to the chapter launch of Social Media Club JAX. We will be launching the club next Tuesday, February 17th, 6:30 – 8:00 PM at the Pablo Creek Regional Library. (click for map)
This will be the first open gathering of Social Media Club Jacksonville for everyone interested in joining the club. The plan is that it will be an informal meet-up to introduce the goals of Social Media Club, talk about what the Jacksonville chapter can look like, and a way to meet like-minded people in the community.
From the founders: Chris Heuer and Kristie Wells started Social Media Club (SMC) in July 2006 to help people find all the relevant communities of interest in which they want to participate. We want to help you explore your personal and professional passions by helping you connect with a community of your peers based on both geography and areas of interest. We want to ensure that the world of Social Media does not become an echo chamber of self-reinforcing thoughts, but is instead fueled by diversity of opinion and perspective.
If you’d like to learn more about the Social Media Club parent organization, visit socialmediaclub.org. The About page and Our Tag Line give really good background to the principles of why SMC is rewarding for everyone involved.
Social Media Club JAX is for everyone with an interest, everyone is welcome! To RSVP for the meeting, you can tweet to @smcjax, comment on this post, add your info to the wiki or email us. Also, if you have ideas for what you’d like to see, let us know or bring them with you to the chapter launch. Hope to see you there!
