Join the Social Media Club

Have started a conversation - or rather joined in a conversation - with the guys at the Social Media Club in the US via Chris Heuer.

This is a great idea and, as usual our ex-colonial friends, are leading the debate. Social Media Club is organised for the purpose of sharing best practices, establishing ethics and standards, and promoting media literacy around the emerging area of Social Media. They say this is the beginning of a global conversation about building an organization and a community where the many diverse groups of people who care about social media can come together to discover, connect, share, and learn. And you can't argue with that.

The idea for Social Media Club originated in the autumn of 2005 with the Web 2point1 BrainJam. This led them to create the non-profit BrainJams organization to promote the idea of unconferences and ad-hoc collaboration to a broader audience of non-geeks. Over the course of the last year, BrainJams has brought Social Media Club together with people from all over the world.

Social Media Club aims to bring together journalists, publishers, communications professionals, artists, amateur media creators, citizen journalists, teachers, students, tool makers, and other interested collaboraters. Essentially the people who create and consume media who have an interest in seeing the ‘media industry’ evolve for everyone’s benefit.

As they say we are more than just USERS, we are the reason the tools exist - we are the people who communicate our thoughts and ideas near and far.

Join in the conversation.
