Between my son, all the hype, and the Arena Marketing Conference, I have been really learning a lot about the social networking sites. I now belong to three: LinkedIn, Facebook, and My Space. I might join at least one more. For someone that is in business (grown-ups) LinkedIn seems to make the most sense. I am finding tons of people that I have worked with over the years. Because of being linked in to their networks I should meet even more.
On Facebook I am finding a lot of people that I went to high school and college with. That’s pretty cool. It is like a reunion of sorts.
So as I was searching around the sites when I thought “what about social networking events?” There are so many groups and clubs and organizations on these sites that you could have social network tours traveling around the country catering to them. People could actually meet (person to person) at these events. This could be a sponsors dream come true. Think about how targeted you could be with these events. I think I am going to really look into promoting these events. What do you think? Send me your comments and ideas.
