We are similar in intent to the  London Social Media Cafe, or Tuttle Club.



Social Media Manchester social network on Ning has been created, to help network pre- and post- event, as well as provide a friendlier interface to getting involved it is also the place where you can create your own profile page. Please don't put profile pages on the wiki, just links. Sign-up now! and follow our Twitter account for the latest notices.




Travelling back to it's ancestral home; October's SMC was held at The Northern on Tib Street. Adrian Stevenson @adrianstevenson held an enlightening session entitled Linked Data and the Semantic Web - What are they, and do I need to care? with November In Manchester @Nov_in_Mcr explaining the launch of a new social media novel set in Manchester, where people can sign up to participate.


There were also three 'The Future of SMC' sessions held, allowing SMCers to feedback and help the Cafe evolve. Notes on these sessions are here Please feel free to edit and comment, as this is an ongoing discussion.



The next SMC is a special event in partnership with FutureEverything EVNTS and North West Vision and Media.

It still contains the same Social Media Cafe goodness that we all know and love, with the usual Unconference Barcamp format sessions, but as it's coinciding with the FutureEverything 2010 EVNTS Launch there will be a talk by Hugh Garry, Producer for Radio 1 and 1extra.


If you want to run a session put your name down on the Session List 03NOV09 page


EVNTS is a network of North West creatives working in events, music and the arts. The EVNTS Meetings are a series of regular gatherings, open to everybody working in the creative industries and beyond, to come together to network, collaborate and share.


During the festival, EVNTS presents a programme of independently run music and art events across the city, showcasing new and groundbreaking talent. It gives the opportunity for more people to participate in the festival, and enables artists to get their work seen and heard, plus a limited number are awarded funding assessed by a jury of industry experts.
