On June 30th the world celebrated Social Media Day, and so did Buffalo!  The very first social media centric event this summer at local downtown hot spot Merge was such a success that organizers have now planned monthly meetups throughout the year. Western New York’s social media scenesters are excited and happy to connect with one another and brainstorm new ideas.

“Blackberries and iPhones were still a buzz with tweets but this time you could also do your social networking face to face,” said Skunkpost.com who documented the June 30th event.
