So, you know how to join a Twitter chat, you know how to survive one, and you know how to behave…but you don’t know of any Social Media-related chats that you can participate in. Never fear, as I present to you some of the most popular ones below.
#socialchat – Moderated by Alan K’necht and Michelle StinsonRoss, #socialchat is a general knowledge chat related to Social Media and marketing. Most chats take the form of structured Q&A, with people answering the questions as they are stated, and additional commentary evolves from there.
#socialchat runs on Mondays from 9:00pm to 10:00pm EST.
#SMmanners – Led by @DabneyPorte, who also handles the #SMGirlfriends meta-chat, #SMManners was recently copyrighted. However, the chat itself concerns social media manners, and how to increase your influence using your manners.
#SMManners runs every tuesday at 10:00 P.M EST
#Getrealchat – Self-proclaimed Marketing Nut Pam Moore leads this chat. The purpose, according to Pam, is that the chat “focuses on power of social relationships and being real in biz & life.” Topics often cover how to blend Social Media in with direct marketing, as well as branding and performing to the people.
#Getrealchat is right before #SMManners, Tuesday at 9:00 P.M EST.
#eavchat – This Twitter chat is dedicated to what’s arguable the Social Media Stock Market of the world: Empire Avenue. Chats often entail strategies to landing additional dividends, investing in others, and using Empire Avenue to increase one’s reputation, ROI and even get new clients.
