Social Media Tulsa to Celebrate Mashable’s #SMDay 2011 with a #SMTulsa Meetup

Mashable has announced that the second annual Social Media Day will be held Thursday, June 30, 2011. The global event is a celebration of the technological advancements that enable everyone to connect with real-time information, communicate from miles apart,and have their voices be heard.

Social Media Tulsa began on Social Media Day 2010 in the historic Greenwood district, and the planning for Social Media Day 2011 has begun.

“There’s no better way to celebrate the revolution of media becoming a social dialogue than by socializing with your online community offline,” said Meghan Peters, Mashable writer.

“Social Media Tulsa is full of talented and influential people from all backgrounds, using the tools of the social web to enhance their lives,” explained Cheryl Lawson of Party Aficionado, LLC and Founder of Social Media Tulsa. “With over 200 members, I can’t wait to connect with everyone on Social Media Day.”

From monthly meetups to a full-fledged social media conference, Social Media Tulsa has been an active and productive group. Several businesses have recognized the power of social media buzz and have gladly invited the group to their restuarants, hotels, and venues for events.

There are several ways you can participate in Social Media Day Tulsa.

We Live to Fight Another Day

Well, Not every meetup can be a home run or get the swarm badge.  Have no fear!  We WILL try again.  Not because I’m obsessed with the swarm badge,  but because I really want people and businesses in Tulsa to see the value of participating in location based opportunities.  

It’s also fun when you check in to a place like Mayfest, and find out your friends are there at the same time… You can coordinate a meeting place and have a corn dog together!

Not sure about Location based services and how they can benefit your business? The best advice I can give is try, get started. Here is cool case study to get your creative juices flowing:
