Social Media Events Calendar, Fall 2008

Social Media Events Calendar, Fall 2008

If you are anything like me, you long for an interactive social media networking “master calendar.” I’d like one that listed all events, big and small, national, international and local, and that included a way for people to add their event as well, whether they are hosting a small Tweetup or a large convention.

Sure, there are Upcoming, MeetUp, EventBrite and other tools, but we don’t all use the same ones. What I want is one tool that creates a master calendar and also links back to those. While I’m daydreaming I’ll go out on a limb and ask Santa for a tool that creates a centralized list as a “go-to” destination for seeing all of your possibilities for networking at once and then also places your event onto the event sign up tool of your choice, like Upcoming or EventBrite.

Since I have yet to find that useful application in social networking land, I decided to take a stab at creating a resource post instead. After combing the Internet to find all of the social media events this Fall, I present my version of the Social Media Master Calendar. Please, if you have an event I missed, use this post as a place to link it in the comments for all to see.
