Date and Skate Night Named Top Pick for Social Media Week Los Angeles


Social Media Week Worldwide has officially started. The multi-city event is taking place from September 19-24, 2010 in Bogota, Columbia, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Milan, as well as in Los Angeles, the only U.S. location. At today’s Los Angeles Press Conference, Toby Daniels, executive director for Social Media Week said, “Social Media Week is unique.” He added, We want the conference to become a lens where we can look at the broader impact of social media in society.”  Daniels added, “Sharing links is like buying drinks.”

Erick Brownstein founder of the New Agency and producers of Social Media Los Angeles thanked everyone for their support.  Brownstein told the group,“The depth and breadth of week’s lineup of events goes from the Guild to small businesses. Seeing all these events coming together in such a short time is a testament to allowing people to have a platform.”

We are excited that Social Media and More and Cyber Dating Expert Julie Spira will host Date and Skate Night as part of the 5-day celebration.  The Huffington Post named Date and Skate Night as one of their top picks for Social Media Week in Los Angeles. The event is being held in conjunction with Down and Derby. Skaters will be downloading several dating apps on their iPhones, Blackberrys and Droids. Flip Me Dating will be on site providing the first 100 who RSVP on Eventbrite a deck of their dating cards along with a 3-month membership. Singles will be able to sign up on the spot and flirt while they’re skating.
