SMB12: The Lost Tribes: Leveraging Social Media and Networking to Build Communities

Boston's Social Media Breakfast is organized by Bob Collins and brings together social media experts and newbies alike for a morning of networking, sharing of ideas and discovery.  Thanks to our monthly sponsors - who help off-set most of the costs.

SMB12: The Lost Tribes: Leveraging Social Media and Networking to Build Communities

Too often within Social Media Circles or any one Community of Interest - after a certain amount of growth, sharing of ideas and time - they can become stagnant.  Or worse yet - become insular in their thinking, the network of ideas and opportunities diminish - the echo chamber emerges.

Our next Social Media Breakfast will focus on using social media as a tool to reach and activate established networks outside of the social media space. Utilizing a strong network connected through Social Media as nodes, or outlets to access the global community unleashes the power and reach of Social Media.

SMB12 will feature presentations by some of Boston's most active civic, educational and business Community leaders' - sharing their experiences in creating a new breed of connections among different organizations, people, networks and ideas using open Social Media strategies.
