About Us

Who we are:
We are the Hawaii Chapter of the Social Media Club, an international, educational nonprofit organization (501c6) based in San Francisco that was initially formed in 2006 by Chris Heuer and Kristie Wells. It currently has over 120 chapters worldwide and is growing rapidly. Normally chapters are city-based, however we manage a statewide chapter for all of us throughout the Hawaiian Islands.

We welcome the participation of all who wish to be part of the social media revolution and wish to participate in the National Charter’s Mission and Goals.

The members of Social Media Club commit to developing and supporting best practices of transparency, authenticity, and ethics in the use of social media and social networking. Our members are leaders in the field and are helping to define these business practices.

Our Mission

Social Media Club’s primary mission is to expand digital media literacy, promote standard technologies, encourage ethical behavior and share best practices. We bring together journalists, publishers, communications professionals, artists, amateur media creators, citizen journalists, teachers, students, tool makers, and other interested collaborators. Essentially the people who create and consume media who have an interest in seeing the ‘media industry’ evolve for everyone’s benefit. We are more than just USERS, we are the reason the tools exist – we are the people who communicate our thoughts and ideas near and far. Join us and let’s shape the future together!
