We're baaaaaaaaaaaaack!

Nice to see you!

Social Media isn't always easy.  For every "Dunk in the Dark" and "Ellen selfie", there are numerous stories of when social media didn't quite go how a company wanted (ahem US Airways).

In this month's panel, "The Dark Side of Social Media", we're sharing stories of unusual, unexpected, or difficult circumstances that happened while being a social media or community manager for a major brand or company.

Come join us for a cathartic and inspirational conversation, featuring pizza, beer and these folks:

Confirmed Panelists: 

• Morgan Johnston (@mhjohnston) - Corporate Communications Manager and Social Strategist, JetBlue Airways (@jetblue)

• Savannah Peterson (@savissavvy) - Global Community Manager, Shapeways  (@shapeways)

• Jeff Ramos (@ohjefframos) - Community Manager, MKG (@thisismkg)

• Evan Watkins, (@evanwatkins83) - Community Manager, MRY (@MRY)

Schedule:

6:30PM - 7:00PM - Pizza, beverages, networking 
7:00PM - 8:00PM - Panel Session w/ Guest Speakers 
8:00PM - 8:15PM - Audience/Twitter Q&A (#CMmeetup) 
8:15PM - 8:30PM - Job Announcements

Tweet along with us and ask your questions at #cmmeetup.

    A CM gets fired for a Donald Sterling tweet that focused more on his invasion of privacy rather than his bigotry.

      Wow that's interesting isn't it. And that's why Twitter disclaimers like 'Views Are My Own' won't save your job.

      Or one of my favorites, just because you have an opinion, doesn't mean you have to share it. Be careful what you tweet dumb-dumbs.

    Hi everyone, my one guest of two will not be able to attend tonight. That frees up one ticket. Is there a way to get a refund for the one person? Looking forward to seeing you all tonight! Cheers!

    • Lea M.

      Karen, I've refunded you $5 and changed your RSVP to include only 1 guest. See you soon!
