At this meeting we will discuss Facebook and Twitter.
Facebook is a social networking website that allows users to join networks organized by city, workplace, school, and region to connect and interact with other people. People can also add friends and send them messages, and update their personal profiles to notify friends about themselves. A study conducted in February 2009 ranked Facebook as the most used social network by worldwide monthly active users, followed by MySpace.
Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read each others' updates, known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters, displayed on the author's profile page and delivered to other users - known as followers - who have subscribed to them. Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends or, by default, allow open access. Users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter website, Short Message Service (SMS) or external applications.
Due to restricted space at this meeting location we are limiting attendance to 25 members. The fee of $6 in advance will cover your first beverage and snacks. The fee at the door will be $15 if there is space still remaining. Please use PayPal for advance payment of $6.00:
While sipping our cappuccino or tea, we will discuss how local businesses such as Espresso Thy Art are using social media Web sites like Facebook and Twitter to connect with their customers.
