Social Media Day

If you have a Facebook account or actively engage with others on Twitter, you must already know that social media isn’t just a force to be reckoned with… but a venue where fun things happen!

It gets even better when you actually know the people you engage with on a personal level. That’s what tweetups are for. It gives everyone the opportunity to know more about the people you chat with beyond what their profile pics will ever reveal.

I’ve been to quite a number of tweetups already and every one of ’em has been a blast!

It may be intimidating for others to not know anyone at first but don’t let nerves get the best of you. Just keep in mind that everyone attending a tweetup has at one time or another been an uneasy stranger during his/her first attendance. Don’t fret! People are extra friendly and accommodating. Believe me, hanging out on Twitter after being in one of these tweetups makes the experience of being online extra fun and more enjoyable.

Tweetups are also awesome “networking” opportunities – explore business openings, find sideline jobs, heck… even discover your long lost soulmate in the process!

Just come… Come for curiosity’s sake… stay for the fun.

That being said… get ready for a major tweetup on Saturday, June 30, 2012 at 4:00PM!
