The first Charleston Social Media day is in the books! Bloggers, Tweeters, media, radio hosts, reality TV stars, rockers, a person in a bulldog costume, and even Congressman Mark Sanford mingled and celebrated the occasion last night at The Alley.
The large crowd was treated to music from Tyler Boone, an awards ceremony, discounted food and drinks from the venue, social media trivia, and LOTS of giveaways. Many people left with either awards, gifts, or both. The Social Media Day party was also a great opportunity to meet other people and network.
