Everything is social. Social media is not a separate skill, but something that each part of each organisation touches in some way. It is inescapable but can be harnessed and to harness it there is value in looking at social media, and the part it plays, under a microscope.
#themeet140 was unwittingly thrown together by @chrish10 and @markofrespect after meeting at media140 and Likeminds events. We felt that despite our passion for social media, and Twitter especially, it was no alternative to getting interesting people together over food and drinks. So, we put it out there seeking a crowd with a shared interest.
Our first #themeet140 was held at the fantastic Tibits in London on the 21st April where over 20 of us had a great laugh: we decided to put it on again when we were in the same place together, or when the time felt right.
No agenda, just come to see old friends and make new, discuss social media or just pure banter. It is the social part of social media and we love a diverse crowd.
Oh, just one thing, leave the business cards at home.
