local social media participation

by | Jan 31, 2009 | Daily life

In the last few weeks, I have attended multiple functions that came directly out of communication through twitter, facebook and meetup.com.

In early January, I was invited to be a part of a round table discussion on local news and making it more interactive which included a tour of the local NBC17 studios in Raleigh.

Then, on Thursday night, with over 100 other people, I attended the first 2009 Triangle Tweetup where I got to meet a couple women I know on Twitter, in person for the first time.

For me, online social networking has led to some great opportunities to meet a variety of folks in a more traditional live networking setting. I also attend several meetup groups in the area, both for social gatherings and for business connections.

Online interactions can be impersonal, so I always love putting a face to a name at these events!
