While Social Media agencies continue to work for brands to create strategies and leverage social media spaces for them, there is a need to bring up media literacy, promote best practices and stay up to the trends. Social Media Club is a platform that facilitates these and more while helping industry practitioners connect and engage offline.
Social Media Club’s primary mission is to promote 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.

Social Media Club has 230 chapters worldwide with chapters in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore in India. Last week, SMC Delhi had it’s February’2011 meet at NASSCOM office in Chanakyapuri, New Delhi.
I’d like to thank Rajesh, who talked about IndiaSocial, a community of social media practitioners in India.
Rajesh took us through how, when, what, why, where and more on the IndiaSocial Community. It was inevitable to know how unbiased the community is with folks from fellow agencies contributing avidly to it by writing articles on social media trends, events and case studies in India.
In an interesting fashion, Rajesh gave away 2 copies of the India Social Media Report 2010 which is also available for sale on the website. I am thankful to him for passing on a copy to me as well. 🙂
I’d like to thank Gaurav and Avinash for reviving the spirits to bring up this session. We missed both of you this time. It was great meeting Rahul Narvekar – Co-founder at Fashion & You, Sumit Goyal – Editor in Chief at Food & Nightlife and others who came up for an amazing discussion during and after the meet.
We’re looking forward to see more action at the next session of Social Media Club, Delhi which is tentatively scheduled for 4th of March’2010. We’ll have Rabi Gupta from iDubba as a speaker for the March session. You may check out iDubba review on Pluggdin.
We’ll soon have the details up for RSVP. Follow SMC Delhi on twitter to stay tuned!
I would request all stakeholders to participate actively, spread the word and help revive the community.
