SMCLA (Social Media Club LA) is having their May event on Wednesday evening, May 23 at the Edmunds.com headquarters in Santa Monica. It’s all about Social TV and its evolution – so what are you waiting for? RSVP now and tell them I sent ya! Better still, tell ME and I’ll be on the lookout for you!
What is Social TV? It’s the mash-up of tv watching and the chatter going on on social channels. Did you vote for a favorite contestant on American Idol? Do you check in on GetGlue? Do you live-blog or live-tweet during sporting events? Do you watch programming on Blip.tv or Yap.tv? Have you downloaded Conan O’Brien’s app (Go Team CoCo!)? That’s part of it. On the back-end where the nerds sit (me… you), social tv is also something that companies look at to increase viewership, engagement, and quite frankly, prove that there is interest in a particular show.

My fellow board member Marla Schulman is moderating a great panel – Patrick O’Brien (MyFoxLA), Blake Lown (Hulu), and Stephanie Piche (MingleMediaTV). Come join us for conversation about TV and how social media plays a part in it.
