social-media-photosHow many times have you gone to a Conference hoping to see or hear a particular thing only to be disappointed? I’m not suggesting these Conference’s were bad and didn’t provide value, but what was it you went there for but walked away feeling like you didn’t get what you invested in? I think more conferences should be taking place to involve as many people as possible, in as many area’s as possible too! I am working on putting together a Conference in my area but I’m hoping you will tell me, what you would like to see & hear if you attended. Keep in mind we can’t please everyone and it’s possible the conference could go on for weeks with everyone’s wishes, so the list will be scrutinized to ensure we cover the HOT topics.

I am looking for your input on the topic of Social Media In Your Community, please send me an e-mail or leave your idea’s and wish list in the comments of what you would really love to see & hear at a Social Media Conference in your Community. After all, you did want to come to Canada didn’t you?

    What a great idea…..

    Ideas for this conference:

    1. Explaining in general how to use social media in the community and in business.

    2. Explaining the Etiquette of how to use social media(a lot of people do not still understand this).

    3. Having people talk about the different social media outlets and explaining that their is more to social media then twitter and Facebook.

    4. the culture of social media.

    5. Showing good example of how social media has worked and where it has failed.

    6. A topic not directly related to social media but worth touching on – how to protect yourself from fraud on the Internet. A lot of people new to the Internet are new to this too.

    7. Maybe some workshops where people work on examples in groups and learn from their peers.

    I hope this helps.
