This week, Social Media Club announced that it has formed an interim Board of Directors to help chart strategic goals and establish key social media ethics and standards. The purpose of Social Media Club is to share “best practices, establishing ethics and standards, and promoting media literacy with a focus on the emerging discipline of Social Media” as well as provide a “forum for diverse groups and individuals to discover, connect, share and learn about social media and to play a role in its future evolution.” The group was co-founded by Chris Heuer and Kristie Wells.
One quick glance at the list of 42 selected social media analysts, bloggers and business leaders comprising the Board show that SMC has pulled together quite the powerful lineup to lead the charge. Seems like a huge Board, but given the nature of social media, I can imagine the agenda of topics to address is quite lengthy.
Hope over and check out SMC. I’m a general member and look forward to seeing if the group gets a Chicago chapter in place sometime soon.
