Social Media Night at The Dali Museum!

Ooohh…. This is going to be GREAT. Join me and my family at the Dali Museum for a the more surreal meetup ever! :) They’ve been working on this for quite a while and I know there are already over 50 people who have RSVP’d on Facebook.

Yelp is Official in Tampa!

At Bright Eyes we try to stay ahead of the game when it comes to social media. We’ve had the blog for about 4 years now. We have fun with Facebook and Twitter. When foursquare was available in Tampa, I was one of the first local bloggers to write about it. As turned out, that was pretty successful.

Well, I am excited to share the news that Yelp is official in Tampa! If you are not familiar with it, Yelp is a social online business review site. People use the site to help decided where to go and then share opinions about their experiences afterward, good and bad. You can read a more detailed explanation on my Westchase Patch blog here.

I have been using Yelp personally since early 2009 and have found it to be a lot of fun. We’ve also established a Bright Eyes account and have been offering Yelp discounts and check-in rewards check in for a quiet a while. But now that we have an official  Tampa Yelp representative, we have lots of more options includingReviews of the Day, Newsletters, and official events. So get excited! This is yet more validation that we have a thriving tech scene in Tampa. It is something we should be proud of and continue to develop!

If you have any questions about how yelp works either for consumer business, don’t hesitate to let me know.

(PS: I’m still excited about Google Plus! If you haven’t had the opportunity to try it out yet, let me know and I will get you an invite as soon as I can.)

UPDATE: It seems the video has been made private. I have no idea why. I’ll contact TED and see if I can find out. -Dr. Nate

Woohoo! My TEDx PalmaCeia talk about building community with social media is up on Youtube. This was a great experience and I am happy and honored to have been involved.

Here is a very brief outline of my talk:

  • Value of building business by supporting others
  • Relationships at the individual level
  • Relationships at the business-to-business level
  • Relationships at the community level
  • Relationships at the global level
  • Importance of ideas, trust, relationships in community development
