News10 My Neighborhood hosts social media event | News
News10 My Neighborhood is News10's hyper local community social media website venture.
One of its main goals is to connect with people and organizations in the 33 communities that it covers, and develop a team of contributors who submit content that benefits those communities.
As part of our outreach we host events that we believe are of interest to our viewers.
This past week we hosted an event called 'Social Media Extravaganza' at the News10 station. Approximately 70 people in attendence helped us examine this question - Is Social Media a buzz word that's a lot of hype or an effective tool that will help your brand and business?
Covering Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Foursquare, Pinterest, YouTube and Instagram, our panel of experts showed our attendees how to manage their social media campaigns in a realistic manner.
The overall message was not to be intimidated by any of these tools, nor feel that you need to be doing all of them to be in the game. Rather, they each are beneficial and have slightly different purposes and gains. And, if you get your feet wet as part of a more natural way of experiencing a new form of communication, you're more apt to make the right social media choices for yourself.
Attendees had a chance to learn about each tool during the panel discussion part of the event, and then groups broke off into roundtable discussions with each expert fielding questions on more of a one-on-one basis.
News10 My Neighborhood wants to thank Josh Unfried CEO of WindFarm Marketing CEO Josh Unfried, ClickSpring Co-founder Scott Eggert, SmartNet Strategies owner Melissa Washington and News10 social media and multimedia web producer Maneeza Iqbal for donating their time and brillance in making this event the success story that it was.
