Hey guys! Abi here. Natan and I just got back from Societal Social, an evening celebrating the launch of the Social Media Society (@soosocial). This is the first society of its kind, focusing primarily on social media. We all know about blogging, tweeting, facebooking, and myspacing (yes, these are all terms accepted by urbandictionary.com) but have you ever thought about how big of a communications industry these sites are?
For this reason Comm club wants to get involved. By meeting professionals in this field we can plan for guest speakers and learn about internship opportunities. Natan and I were the only students at the event and people were very excited to talk to us. We met the founder of Social Media Society and are looking forward to collaborating with them by becoming a student chapter.
Social media is a huge up and coming industry and we’re really excited to get involved! For those of you interested in digital marketing, PR, media, ad sales, or anything that has to do with social media stay tuned for updates on the situation!
Update: Comm Club covered in MediaPost's Just An Online Minute blog!
Update: Here's a very poorly edited clip we put together from the night. Hope you enjoy it.
