Social Media and Social Good – In honor of Mashable’s on Social Good Day on 9/23, we’ll be discussing how social media and web 2.0 tools can be used to raise money and awareness and to create social change. Steve Sevchuk will share his story and goal of using the upcoming New York City Marathon as an opportunity to beat something other than just his best time: the cancers that has struck at his loved ones. Following Steve’s presentation, Kevin Haughwout will lead a discussion on how other groups and individuals are using social media to create social good, and to determine how we can do the same.
What’s New in Social Media? – A lot happens in a month on the social web. Apple has entered the social networking world with Ping. Twitter has recreated it homepage, but was that done to bring people to its site or to keep them there? New sites applications are launching daily, and our group of social media mavens always have something to say about them long before even Mashable or TechCrunch does!
Kevin Haughwout is a marketer, engineer, and unrepentant problem-solver. He launched a blog at freedmarketer.com to translate marketing jargon into language that anyone could understand. He organized the Social Media Coffeehouse to put the social back into social media (and to save some tolls for NJ-based professionals who would otherwise network in NYC!)
Steve Sevechuk is running the 2010 ING NYC Marathon on November 7th to help sponsor cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center for Fred’s Team. Information on the loved ones in whose memory he is running and how you can sponser him is available on his web site, Run Steve and on his Facebook fan page.
