Social Media Clubs


I came home “pumped” last night after attending my first meeting of Victoria, B.C.’s  Social Media Club.

Pumped because I enjoy connecting with others face to face who share my passion for social media. Among my immediate circle of friends, many aren’t even on Facebook. And they don’t “get” Twitter.

So it’s always fun to share and learn from others – there was a wealth of knowledge in the room. We talked about the interesting connections we’d made through social media.

Similar clubs are starting up all over the world. If you have an interest in finding out what all this is about, you can get more information through the following pages on Facebook:

Meetings typically include a guest speaker who talks about different social media technologies and trends. There’s also ample opportunity to network. Meetings are casual and open, but focused so you walk away with new insights and ideas.

Who attends? The Victoria group is a mix of people with a good knowledge of social media and entrepreneurs interested in using social media to grow their business. Lots of interest in marketing and communications, and several web developers and SEOs.

Victoria locals wanting to learn more could contact myself, or the club co-founders, Catherine Novak and Paul Holmes. Both are extremely knowledgeable in the area of social media, and very willing to share that knowledge with others.

  1. Cindy, thanks so much for the plug – with the big picture of me, no less!!

    Social Media Club is growing like crazy, as people from a wide range of interests find that connecting online is becoming an important means of sharing information and building trust and community.

    People can follow our developments by following @smcvictoria on Twitter, or look up Social Media Club Victoria on either LinkedIn or Facebook.

    Can’t wait to see you at the next one, Cindy!

    • You’re welcome. I think it’s a great picture. I’d heard that @raincoaster may be an upcoming speaker – is that true? That’d be awesome.
