(FORT WORTH, TX) AUGUST 15, 2011 — Hashtag, circles, retweet, and check-in may sound like a foreign language to some, but thanks to the Social Media Club of Fort Worth (SMCFW), more and more people in Fort Worth are becoming social media savvy and learning the lingo. SMCFW celebrates its one-year anniversary this summer and is hosting a party Thursday, September 15, 2011 from 7 – 10 p.m. at the new Barcadia Fort Worth to commemorate a solid first year.
There’s a stereotype that follows Secret Service agents. A black-suit-black-tie, all-business, slightly intimidating stereotype. So when Secret Service Special Agent David Bentz began his presentation, imagine everyone’s surprise when we discovered two very important things:
1) The Secret Service has a sense of humor, and 2) that they are very much on top of things in the world of internet security.
After starting out with a warning that he would shoot any mobile devices being used by his audience during his presentation (causing a few of us to discreetly lower our iPhones, at least for a few minutes), Agent David Bentz gave us a brief history of the Secret Service.
To celebrate an exciting first year, we’re throwing a party at the brand new Barcadia Fort Worth on Thursday, September 15, from 7-10 p.m.
This party is an opportunity for all of our members to celebrate the club’s success and also a chance for friends, co-workers and others in the community to come see what we’re all about.
Barcadia Fort Worth opens the week before the party, so this will be the perfect time to come check out an awesome new Fort Worth spot.
There is no cost to attend, but please RSVP (if you can) here.
