Social Media and Stompernet Meetup

It was another great meetup for the Utah stompers group.  Tonight’s topic was social media.  Group leader Andrea walked us through some social media strategies at the new meetup location at Surface 9.

As always, the best information comes from within the group.  A lot of web tools get mentioned at these meetups, but usually only a few stand out as must have.

One of these must have tools was shared by its developer and was called twitjump.  It allows you to manage Twitter accounts and keywords.  If you’re like me and searching for a Twitter management tool, twitjump is it.

Andrea asked us not to share the other killer tool we learned about, but you can certainly ask about it at the next meetup in December.  The new location altered the group dynamic and the core group we had chatting last time didn’t materialize.

Instead we toured the recording studios of Surface 9 located one floor below where we met.

This was the second time I’d been in the studio and it was an interesting path the meeting took from discussing social media, to discussing outsourcing tools and technology to better implement social media to touring the video facility that produces a type of social media.

Several people pointed out that social media isn’t limited to Twitter and Facebook.  Anything on the Internet that allows direct feedback is considered social.  So put video (YouTube), photos (Flickr) and blogs into that category.  Andrea suggested blogs are the grandfather of social media and she’s right.

Tonight’s Stompernet local meetup was a great event.  I always learn something new.  Maybe next month you’ll attend and get some of the great information available from such a talented group of people.

    Thanks for the commentary, Nigel! I’m so glad that you didn’t mention that we forgot to order pizza. 🙂 We got going and I was so interested in the discussion that I completely forgot. I love the interaction in our group. I always learn so much! Looking forward to next month. 🙂
