“If you get it, share it!”

That’s long been the tag line for Social Media Club.

As the number of club chapters has grown, so too has the organization, providing quite a journey for the club’s founders. The story of Social Media Club’s founding and growth was discussed earlier this year at Webcom Montreal 2010. Now, The A-List asks Chris Heuer (@ChrisHeuer) and Kristie Wells (@KristieWellswhat they’ve learned in cultivating the global Social Media Club community and – perhaps more importantly – what’s next!

Could a book be on the horizon?

Chris Heuer and Kristie Wells started Social Media Club (SMC) in March 2006 to host conversations around the globe that explore key issues facing our society as technologies transform the way we connect, communicate, collaborate and relate to each other. Social Media Club enables you explore your personal and professional passions by helping you connect with a community of your peers based on both geography and areas of interest. We exist to make sure that the world of Social Media does not become an echo chamber of self-reinforcing thoughts, but is instead fueled by diversity of opinion and perspective.

The first chapter launched in the San Francisco Bay Area, CA (USA) on August 16, 2006. There are 200+ chapters in existence today, and we cover six of the seven continents (watch out Antarctica.. we are coming your way soon!). If you are interested in starting a Social Media Club chapter in your local city, please visit our chapter page for details.

Social Media Club’s primary mission is to promote media literacy, promote standard technologies, encourage ethical behavior and share best practices. We bring together journalists, publishers, communications professionals, artists, amateur media creators, citizen journalists, teachers, students, tool makers, and other interested collaborators. Essentially the people who create and consume media who have an interest in seeing the ‘media industry’ evolve for everyone’s benefit. We are more than just USERS, we are the reason the tools exist – we are the people who communicate our thoughts and ideas near and far. Join us and let’s shape the future together!
