This morning I attended the 2nd Social Media Breakfast NH. It was my first Social Media Breakfast, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, it was a great event! Social Media Enabler Extraordinaire, Leslie Poston (@geechee_girl) did a fabulous job in organizing the event and bringing in high quality presenters and attendees. Nice work Leslie!
While all the presenters were good, to me the highlight was Martin Murray from Public Service of New Hampshire. He talked about how they used Twitter during the power outages in December 2008 to deliver messages and answer questions from customers while the electricity was out in New Hampshire. It was a great way for them to reach thousands of people and deliver near real time updates. Martin also shared how PSNH is using Flickr and YouTube as additional social media tools to reach their customers. Nice work PSNH!!
I was also impressed with the other attendees at the event, and the time we had to network was great. It was invigorating and exciting to hear how so many different New Hampshire companies are integrating Social Media into their businesses. It also confirms our commitment at CustomScoop to continue expanding our coverage of monitoring social media for our customers. We were proud to be the sponsor of the Social Media Breakfast NH and look forward to the next event. Hopefully, we'll see you there too!
