On June 30th, Mashable is running a worldwide Social Media Day to "celebrate the revolution of media becoming a social dialogue".

The Social Media Melbourne / @socialmelb crew will be coming together in honour of the day, for our inaugural drinks meetup. We'll be gathering from 6.30pm at the creative, rustic and spacious FAD Gallery in Chinatown. Telstra have kindly supported us on the night by shouting everyone's first drink.

It would be great to see everyone in the Melbourne community there! All welcome.

We've now got @Tribalytic sponsoring live entertainment in the form of Yuki Miyazaki. Also, our very own @daveando will be dong an acoustic warm-up.

Don't forget to use the hashtags #smday and #socialmelb to tag your content on Flickr, YouTube and Twitter throughout the evening.

Let's show the world (well, perhaps just Sydney) what the Melbourne social media community is made of!

    hurrah! it's official, we are can all rejoice in being geeks.

    although my suggestion is that, we shouldn't just talk about social media, but rather DO something social together and then share what each city has done around the world.

    Also, for those who are already addicted to world of social networking, we should each invite people who aren't that exposed to meetups and join in the fun!
