We shouldn’t forget that social media is about being social which is why events like Social Media Breakfasts are so important.
Here are a few reasons why I enjoy going:
- It’s a great way to meet people face to face with whom you have largely an on-line relationship.
- It’s also a great place to meet people with whom you want to have a relationship…
- There’s a common interest shared in social media but also very divergent points of views and perspectives.
- The coffee and muffins are great at La Bistrote
- Get to learn some great stuff that on topics you might have downloaded a webinar to see, but never got around to viewing it.
- Get a chance to meet Jeff and the great guys at Heelatch who organize this event and understand what “social” really is.
