Third "Preston Tweetup"

Good turnout again at the Continental in Preston for the third #prestontweetup.
Whilst the topic was a little ambiguous (good effort though BlogPreston guys!), the event organised by BlogPreston and sponsored by Stage9 was well attended, and to me, further proved the city's ever growing appetite in supporting the truly "social" part of Social Media.

Looking back, it seems only yesterday we were planning the "first Preston Tweet-up" - which was actually now over two years ago.   Who would have thought that when we participated back then, as early adopters of the social phenomena, we would now be sitting around using our mobile devices instead of laptops!

It was great to see so many of the faces from the first event and to connect with new people on the evening.

In a world where far to many people who are just "on" social media "thinks" they're a guru, it was encouraging to see that (most) people in the room understood the REAL principals of Social Media; participation and engagement!

Looking forward to the next event guys :)
