Social Media Club is platform to host conversations that explore key issues facing our society as technologies transform the way we connect, communicate, collaborate and relate to each other.
It brings together people who create and consume media and have an interest in seeing the ‘media industry’ evolve for everyone’s benefit – journalists, publishers, communications professionals, artists, amateur media creators, citizen journalists, teachers, students, etc.
The first chapter was launched in the San Francisco Bay Area, CA (USA) on August 16, 2006.
Our Core Values
There are four core areas which are most important to us:
- Media Literacy,
- Sharing Lessons Learned,
- Encourage Adoption of Industry Standards, and
- Promote Ethical Behavior.
More importantly, we want to ensure that the world of Social Media does not become an echo chamber of self-reinforcing thoughts, but is instead fueled by diversity of opinions and perspectives.
The Local Chapter
In Malaysia, SMCKL organizes monthly meetups to share and promote better use of social media in business, school, non-profits and government. Our goal is try and have many different formats for our monthly meetings to attract people from all backgrounds – not just social media folks.
