"It's all fun and games until someone gets sued." Running a promotion on Facebook or Twitter might seem simple, but there are actually a plethora rules and regulations you need to be aware of before you can give something away on one of these platforms.
SMC Atlanta kicked off its first (standing room only) meeting of 2011 at Manuel's Tavern on Jan. 27 with a presentation by ePrize's Mark Staples and Ben Ryder on the practice and pitfalls of running a social media promotion.
Contests, promotions and games of chance are big on Twitter, Facebook and other social media channels. All of us have probably seen - or taken part in - a "Tweet this and win" contest, or Liked a Page for the opportunity to win big. Even I've won something on Twitter - GA Aquarium silly bands for my daughter.
Avoid the post-holiday blues (and the malls!) by topping off the first day back in the office with a Tweetup on Monday, November 29. Co-hosted by Network Communications Inc (NCI) and the Atlanta chapter of Social Media Club, our guest will be Mack Collier, social media consultant, speaker and the founder of #blogchat.
Monday November 8 marks the start of the first Social Media Atlanta - featuring 38 different panels, Tweet-ups, book signings and more. What better time to announce the re-launch of the Atlanta Chapter of Social Media Club?
