Everyone who is anyone in the Philippine social media scene was present.  You Just know that something important was going to happen.

It was great seeing old friends and new faces alike.  Everyone was either busy mingling, moving about or clicking away on their smartphones doing real-time tweets and FB status updates on what was taking place during the launch.

It’s always awesome to hang out with people whom you share the same passion with.  Conversations are never dull and always engaging.
