Organizing a Social Media Event for the First Time
This past fall, I helped The Midwest Modern Language Association utilize live social media at our annual convention. The MMLA had not previously organized a social media event, and neither had I, so it was a bit of a daunting task. It was difficult, it took some preparations, but the event was a big success! For a taste, see the Storify version of our event backchannel. If our first year went this well, imagine what we’ll be able to accomplish next year!
Over the next couple weeks I’ll be posting the following articles for this series: How I planned a Social Media Event in 3 Short Weeks, 6 things I Learned from Planning My First Social Media Event, Resources for Planning Your First Social Media Event, and My Plans for #mmla2012.
