Social Media Happenings in Utah

Some neat things are happening in the social media world here in Utah, with a number of meetups/tweetups and more coming up in the next weeks.

Tomorrow night in Orem, there’s a Tweetup at CoworkUtah. Jack @coworkutah has a slate of top notch Twitter users that will share their tips on Twitter and the CoworkUtah crew will provide pizza and beverages. Directions and more info is downloadable via this event pdf.

Even more exciting is the first ever meeting of the Social Media Club of Salt Lake City on January 15, with monthly meetings to follow on the third Thursday of every month.  Social Media Club is a national organization, based out of San Francisco, with numerous local chapters throughout the country, and their tagline of, “If you get it, share it.” is what they’re all about.

Down the road a bit more is the 2nd PodCamp SLC, scheduled for March 27. There are not a lot of details on this event yet, but the organizers of the 1st ever PodCamp (which was held in Boston) Chris Brogan and Christopher S. Penn, are two of the more interesting people in social media today and I know that any event following in those footsteps will be very interesting.

I highly encourage anyone who is at all interested in social media to attend one or more of these events because one of the most important facets of social media is meeting the people that you are interacting with online and learning from them (and with them) in face to face settings.

  1. Thanks, Eric, for letting people know about our tweetup. It should be a lot of fun. Also, we are working with the national social media club to open a Utah County club as well. We think the two clubs can really support each other and create even more synergy. It’s a great time for social media. Thanks again.

    • @Jack Hadley – thank you for putting an event like this together. I wish I could say I’d be attending, but I don’t think that it’s in the cards this time. Just too busy at work for the moment. Good luck with the tweetup and getting a Utah County SMC going too!

  2. Eric,
    Thank you for mentioning the Salt Lake Social Media Club meeting. To echo what Jack said, it is a very exciting time for social media.These meetings are a great sounding board for bloggers, people interested in social media (or curious about it), PR/marketing folks… ANYONE.
    Once the Utah County SMC gets going we’ll have to have a SMC SLC vs. SMC UC bowling tourney.
    And live-Tweet the thing…
