2. LEARN ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA: Two residents of Sudbury, Bob Cargill and Phil Hollows, will be hosting the 14th Sudbury Social Tweetup on Thursday, Sept. 27, at Bistro 20 at 120 Boston Post Road in Sudbury from 6-8 p.m.
The purpose of this networking event is to bring together business people, marketers and professionals who live or work in Sudbury and the surrounding communities who want to meet others from the area and learn more about such social media communications tools as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and blogs.
Bob and Phil host the Sudbury Social Tweetup on the last Thursday of each month throughout the year. At each Tweetup, there is an informal discussion about a different social media-related topic. In September, the group will be conducting a brainstorm session on how small local businesses can use social media to increase their sales and brand recognition.
