***DUE TO A POWER OUTAGE AT CITYSPACE IN DOWNTOWN CHARLOTTESVILLE, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED AND WILL BE RESCHEDULED ****
The members of the media in Charlottesville are really curious: who are these local people using Twitter to follow them? Who are the Facebook fans of local TV, newspaper, radio and other news sources? Why do they engage with the media and one another using social platforms?
At the same time, members of the community seem to enjoy engaging with members of the media online (either on Twitter or Facebook) so much, that it seems only natural to move that conversation from the online space to “In Real Life.”
So we’re taking the conversation to CitySpace! Along with our friends from Charlottesville Tomorrow, Jaggers Communications is conducting an experiment:
- What happens when you put members of the media in the room with their fans and followers?
- What kind of discussion ensues when the online conversation goes offline?
- What would the community say to media, and the local media say, when addressing the community, about how social media is used in Charlottesville?
Let us know if you plan to come, and invite others here: http://twtvite.com/meetthecvillemedia
