If you are interested in learning more about social media then I highly encourage you to connect with Social Media Charlotte. I have learned a great deal from attending their monthly breakfasts and pleased to have them as part of this years South End Soul events. Below are the details I have copied from their website about this Wednesday’s Social Media Breakfast at Bryon’s South End in the Design Center. Looks like a great topic…see you there!
