Social Media Day took place for the fifth time across the world and was celebrated here in Missouri for the third time on June 30, 2014. For 2014, connected events were held in St. Louis and Jefferson City and online through the miracle of Google hangouts.
Gus Wagner led the Jefferson City portion of the event with a short presentation offering “Ten Tips for Twitter Success” while Danni Eickenhorst of Blank Page Marketing led the St. Louis portion with a talk on integrating social media into real world activities.
Due to the live-tweeting of the event from attendees, #SMDMidwest reached more than 72,000 folks on Twitter with more than 300,000 timeline deliveries. The event obviously dominated the conversation of #JCMO and #STL during its timespan.
