Today – 06/03/2011
Noon to 1 pm
The Annex – 1 College Ave * (see below)
What Happened To Social Media Monday?
It’s now Social Media First Friday. We’ll be meeting today at the Annex at noon, and every following First Friday of each month until further notice.
Topic for today might be Social Media Strategy. We talked about formal strategies and written plans earlier in the year, and as our reach grows (millions of followers of Penn State’s collective efforts) and our needs more profound (budget cuts), the need for predetermined goals and the metrics to prove success or failure becomes essential. Such a formal plan, and therefore this discussion, may also include Penn State and College or Unit level Guidelines, Best Practices or Policy.

The Penn State Chapter of the Social Media Club Facebook Page (http://www.facebook.com/psusmc) is a resource that we Penn State Social Media Pros and Enthusiasts use to stay in touch, relay useful links and invites to various events and such. We also sometimes use the hashtag #psusmff (formerly #psusmm) to query or communicate with the group.
As always during Social Media First Friday, our topics and plans are malleable (but not too much so) and we remain open to your interests and desires. We’ll start with your questions, concerns and curiosities no matter what they may be.
Please circulate this week’s invitation to anyone you think might be interested in spirited social media conversations with actionable substance. View the archives and continue the conversation at the Social Media First Friday Blog .
* The Annex: Cynde says: The actual address is 1 College Ave Annex there is no room number, we are all open down there. The office is located downtown underneath Mr. Charles. There is a door beside Mr. Charles that is under a Penn State sign that says 1 college ave annex on it. You can also enter through the back door on Calder Way across from the India Pavillion. Not sure that entrance is labeled well. Contact me 5-9420 if they need directions.
