So, you’re a geek, right? Don’t worry, you’re not alone in the world. In fact, I bet you might even have more than one or two “friends” that you have met because of being a geek, right? Heck, maybe you are NOT a geek but would secretly like to know what all of this geeky-social-media stuff is all about. If so, you NEED to be at MADCAP theater on Wednesday to hear why someone would want to be a “social media geek.”
Here’s the deal: You have heard of Mashable, right? Yeah, pretty geeky. Mashable has declared June 30 as Social Media Day – A day to celebrate the revolution of media becoming a social dialogue. Celebrate Social Media Day with Mashable by attending our local Tempe meetup at MADCAP this Wednesday, June 30th.
Thankfully, Social Media Arizona (SMAZ) is hosting the Tempe Social Media Day Meetup at MADCAP Theater from 5-7 p.m. People will be getting on the MADCAP stage to give a verbal, in-person Tweet about why they love their favorite social media tool and talk about something great that happened because of it. Pretty geeky, right?
What’s a geek-fest without swag? Not to worry, there will be plenty of great prizes and giveaways from some really cool companies. There will also be live music along with the very highly entertaining presentations from some of our local social media rock-stars. You might be shocked at some of the things you see, hear and learn from Social Media Day!
“It’s not a party without the prizes. City of Tempe, Downtown Tempe Community, GoDaddy, Web3Mavens, SocialMediaAZ, Smashburger, and others will have some impressive swag to give away and you can win tickets to the premier Social Media event in Arizona, the SMAZ conference in September.” – Social Media AZ
From the Downtown Tempe Facebook page we hear that:
“Mashable.com has declared June 30 “Social Media Day” and we are celebrating at MADCAP Theaters with Social Media AZ (SMAZ) from 5-7 p.m. Get on the stage and give an in-person Tweet about why you love your favorite social media tool. Live music. Food. Fun People. Prizes. Win $100 in Mill Avenue bucks, free admission to the September SMAZ event, gourmet coffee and other cool stuff.”
Listen to music by Bears of Manitou and hang out with some of the Valley’s social media illuminati. If you can’t be there, you can Tweet your favorite social media story using #smdayphx and a scrolling Twitterfeed will show it in the MADCAP lobby. SMAZ will live stream the event, too. Watch the event online at www.socialmediaaz.org/smdayphx. You can also post your photos on Flickr and use the tag of #smday which will serve as the national tag for the event.
Visit social Media day at MADCAP Theater which is located at 730 S Mill Avenue. Parking is available in Tempe or you can take the light rail to Mill Avenue. Many of the really geeky people will be riding the light rail to MADCAP.
It makes no difference if you are a social media “guru” or if you are an inexperienced user of social media. This is going to be a really FUN event for all kinds of people! There will even be a drawing for some coaching on how to have great social media experiences. More than that, the people at the event are happy to help. Social Media Day is a great way to meet fun, friendly people geeks.
