Mashable Social Media Day in Tempe
FacebookTwitterFoursquareYouTube. They help us keep up with friends and family virtually when we don’t have time for the in-person experience. They help us share ideas and videos.

Today, they also help us meet up with people in person.

Mashable, the leading information outlet for social media, has declared June 30 to be Social Media Day. More than 525 places around the world are hosting events in honor of the decreed day.

Locally, Social Media Arizona (SMAZ) is hosting a Social Media Day party at MADCAP Theater in Tempe from 5-7 p.m.  SMAZ is inviting people to get on the MADCAP stage and give a verbal, in-person Tweet about why they love their favorite social media tool and talk about something great that happened because they used it. You can RSVP and check out our Meetup details here.

Listen to music by Bears of Manitou, sample free Smashburgers, and hang out with some of the Valley’s social media illuminati. If you can’t be there, you can Tweet your favorite social media story using #smdayphx and a scrolling Twitterfeed will show it in the MADCAP lobby. SMAZ will live stream the event, too. Watch the event live right here on this page the day of the event!

For those who are inexperienced users of the medium, a drawing will be held for some coaching on how to have the best social media experiences. More than that, the people at the event are happy to help. Social Media Day is a great way to meet fun, friendly experts.
It’s not a party without the prizes. City of TempeDowntown Tempe CommunityGoDaddy, Web3Mavens, SocialMediaAZ, Smashburger, and others will have some impressive swag to give away and you can win tickets to the premier Social Media event in Arizona, the SMAZ conference in September.
