Nov. 12 Triangle Social Media Club meeting to feature N.C. State Fair

smc1Throughout the year, we strive to bring our followers on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Flickr and YouTube and readers here on the Deep Fried Blog the type of behind-the-scenes content that they can’t find anywhere else.

Hopefully, you were able to improve your 2009 Fair experience through some or all of these channels. (If not, let us know! We would love to hear your feedback.) On our end, we enjoyed tracking down the most interesting stories and people at the Fair for the blog and connecting with fairgoers on our social networking sites.

Since the Fair, we’ve been compiling information to measure our success and see what we can improve upon for next year. We’re excited to be included in the November meeting of the Triangle Social Media Club, a gathering of Triangle residents who are interested in social media and its applications. The members of Our Hashtag (who we also worked with to pull off the first Deep Fried Triangle Tweetup at the N.C. State Fair) organize the event, and we’re happy to share what we’ve learned, as well as learn from other attendees.

We’ll be joined by Jason Peck, the project manager of eWayDirect’s social media platform. He’ll be talking about purpose-driven communities and the ways his organization is using social media.

Here are the details:

Date: Thursday, Nov. 12, 2009

Time: 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Location: Twine Interactive, 226 Fayetteville St., Raleigh, (919) 341-2957

We hope to see you out there. In the meantime, check out the Triangle Social Media Club on Facebook, Twitter and on the Web.

About Cotton Candy

Karlie Justus - blogged for the 2008 / 2009 N.C. State Fairs. This is her bio from 2009: When I'm not blogging for the N.C. State Fair, I go by Karlie Justus--but Cotton Candy suits me just fine. My earliest memories of the Fair are of the times my parents would bring my brother and I up from Asheville, N.C. for a double dose of the Fair and a N.C. State football game. Fast-forward two decades later, and I'm a public information officer for the deep fried celebration whose must-see Fair attractions include the giant pumpkins, decorated cakes and deep fried Oreos.
