First Social Media Breakfast in Nashua!
NOTE: THE EVENT IS ON May 21, 2010.
Ticket sales end on 5/20 in the evening. Do not confuse the Eventbrite ticket end date with the event date!
This month’s Social Media Breakfast is brought to you by Magnitude Media, DimDim, and Active Edge in Nashua, NH.
Theme for the 11th Social Media Breakfast: Feeding Social Media
The 12th Social Media Breakfast NH is also the first SMBNH in Nashua ! We want you to be included in the state-wide conversation AND have your own tracking, so your official hashtag will be: #SMBNH #Nash so you get two points of impact. This one will be all about topics related to Feeding Social Media. In this struggling economy and shifting paradigm we need to be working together to be more successful and better weather the storm. We should be pulling in all aspects of technology, new media, old media and social media to succeed. This meeting will help us lay the foundation for a richer, better education, tech and new media community in NH.
In addition to Leslie Poston (myself), who will be your host and MC for the morning, you will have three speakers giving three brief presentations on topics relating to the theme for the morning.

Social Media Breakfast History
On seeing growing demand in this area, I decided to fill the need with a new branch of the nationwide Social Media Breakfast in NH. It isn’t that we don’t love Boston, because we do, but our neighbor to the north is rich in technology and social media, and often overlooked when events are planned. I saw a need for networking opportunities that were easier to get to for the northern tech and social media crowd, and decided to step up and fill it. Because NH itself is a diverse and scattered state, the Social Media Breakfast there will be just a little bit different than the one in Cambridge/Boston. Our first meeting was in January 2009, and was a roaring success.
What is a Social Media Breakfast?
From the official description: The Social Media Breakfast was founded by Bryan Person in August 2007 as an event where social media experts and newbies alike come together to eat, meet, share, and learn. Marketers, PR pros, entrepreneurs, bloggers, podcasters, new-media fanatics, and online social networkers are all welcome to attend.
The breakfast series began in Boston and has now spread to more than a dozen cities throughout the United States and around the world.
How will the Social Media Breakfast in NH be different?
The main difference between Social Media Breakfast NH and other SMBs will be all-inclusiveness. I do not want only social media people and companies to attend, I also want technology types, programmers, coders, tech writers, tech companies and more to attend. As a state that is rich in technology but scattered in distance, I think the best networking and connection making effect will be achieved by combined our different cultures. You never know, as a social media type you might just meet the coder you’ve been looking for to create your dream project if we all come together to connect and to learn from each other!
