Last night, SMC Knoxville hosted the long-awaited Social Media Smackdown, where our panelists debated the merits of their favorite social networks in an attempt to sway the audience to believe each panelist's network was the best.
Representing Twitter, we had Rick Laney, Vice President of Ackermann PR. Katie Granju, Social Media Manager of Scripps Networks spoke on behalf of Facebook. Nicole Denton, Digital Communications Specialist at Pyxl covered Pinterest, and Shane Rhyne, Digital Strategies Manager at Ackermann PR, represented Google+.
While the event itself was held last night at Calhoun's on the River (big thanks to Calhoun's for sponsoring!), the debate started long before via some social media smacktalk across Twitter, Facebook and Google+, which really helped attract a crowd for the main event.
