I am so excited! Coming to the East Coast — live — a Social Media Tweetup! We had one in the Valley — that was so energizing but being an East Coast girl, we must try one here!

Every day companies are devising innovative techniques to leverage Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, Lotus Connections, WebSphere Commerce, iLog Visualization and other Social Media technologies to develop deeper customer connections.   And I see that many many countries are getting more and more interested in Social Media — like India, Brazil, and others

Many of you, have stories about ways you have deployed Social Media tactics to successfully drive demand. And I want to hear about them!  I love social media and if you share that passion and quest for Business Savy in measuring it for great business value.

f you do, please plan to share in a casual conversation, Social Media Tweetup, hosted by Sandy Carter, VP of Marketing for IBM’s SOA and Jeremiah Owyang, a Senior analyst for Forrester.

This event will be held in Mid Town Manhattan on Monday, March 23 from 6 – 8 PM. We are limited to 30 attendees so please RSVP quickly
