Join Social Media Club New York City (SMCNYC) for Social Media Camp NY, 2.0 on Wednesday, February 9, 2011 at the Roger Smith Hotel. We're proud to be joined by SMC North Jersey and SMC Long Island as well.
In June of 2009 we ran a very successful Social Media Camp, sharing the basics of Social Media as well as some more advanced techniques. For Internet Week 2010 we'll do this again.
Some of you may know I attend America's Camp every year. It is a camp for kids who lost their parents on 9-11. But it is not a grief camp - it is a wonderful place, filled with positive energy. The kids have been changed for the better having had the camp. It is truly a life-changing experience. And one of the ways we capture that experience is with a yearly DVD that captures the moments we shared at camp.
For local residents who need their resumes updated or their social networking skills upgraded, Monroe College (www.monroecollege.edu) is hosting two back-to-back free events, both on June 30th.

May 18 Social Media Club New York members gathered at the Healthcare Consultancy Group offices New York at the generous invitation of Augustin Fou for a timely discussion about the controversial changes social network industry leaders, especially Facebook, are making to privacy policies and what are the implications.
Speakers Caroline McCarthy from CNET and Samir Balwani from Morpheus Media contributed their industry insights and led a thoughtprovoking wide ranging look at the issues against a backdrop of Diaspora raising approaching $200k through www.kickstarter.com to create a "privacy aware, personally controlled, do-it-all distributed open source social network".
SMC New York chair Howard Greenstein opened the discussion pointing that out "everybody's part of the discussion and everybody gives permission". Topics ranged from the industry intersections, (for example Microsoft's investment in Facebook and the implications for Microsoft Docs now in closed beta), through the practicalities of privacy and geolocation services like FourSquare and Gowalla to actions companies should be taking with privacy policies to keep current. Attendees also shared ways they are acting to protect their privacy from reducing use of Facebook and number of friends to deleting cookies and using sites like Reclaim Privacy.org.
We're still working on our full blog post about this event on Facebook, Twitter, Privacy and the Social Web. Thanks again to our guests, Caroline McCarthy from CNET and Samir Balwani from Morpheus Media.
Pending our blog post, we have some great material for those who missed the meeting.
Thanks to Dean Meyers, here is a full Video Recap of the entire meeting, broken into 3 pieces. Additionally, Dean provided visual notetaking of the event.
