Join the conversation in the Third Tuesday FriendFeed Room

FriendfeedI’ve set up a FriendFeed Room for the Third Tuesday social media meetups. I hope that this will be a place where Third Tuesday participants will gather to discuss the topics explored at each event, speakers you’d like to hear from, things you’d like to learn more about, and offer feedback and suggestions regarding the events themselves.

Shel Holtz and Neville Hobson have had great success in building a community engaged in sharing and discussion in their FIR Room on FriendFeed.

I’ve attempted to do the same thing with a Third Tuesday Facebook group. But frankly, I’ve found it to be an uphill battle to stimulate content in the Facebook group.

So, it’s time to try FriendFeed. I’ve already found that it’s easy to get a discussion going with my first question on the FriendFeed room. On Friday, I asked about possible speakers and topics. Within the next couple hours I heard from three Third Tuesday members Dave Fleet (yes, we work together), David Alston (yes, I use his product) and Eden Spodek (yes, I love her site.)

Third Tuesday Room discussion on FriendFeed

We’ll continue to announce the Third Tuesday Toronto and Third Tuesday Ottawa events on Meetup.com. Meetup has the tools necessary to easily and quickly organize and manage meetings. However, it’s conversation tools are not strong.

So, if you haven’t done so already, click over to the Third Tuesday FriendFeed Room and join the conversation.

  • It took me a while to jump on the FriendFeed bandwagon. Now I see its greatest potential is the environment it creates for meaningful easy-to-follow discussions, particularly in the rooms. I’m looking forward to connecting with other members of the Third Tuesday community across Canada in the future. Thanks for the shout out too.

    Cheers,
    Eden
