Tis the “Summer of Social Good”

Social networking has taken a turn for the good and Swank Productions is going to be a part of it!

With the boom of twitter, facebook, blogs and other social networks, it’s obvious how important and powerful social media can be to individuals and brands alike. (I know a lot of “us” stayed away from all of this because it can all seem so useless when someone updates you with their bathroom breaks every 5 minutes) BUT…. we’re so far past that and loving the relationship we’re building with those who are out there and are so very interesting!
Sorry I digress!
Mashable is aiming at changing the world this summer! Mashable is a highly-traffic blog (3 – 4 million unique visitors a month!!!), named a Top 25 blog of 2009 by and is a top Twitter user, with currently over 610,000 followers and growing by at least 5,000 followers a day. They are the experts and preeminent source for Social Media news and resources for their readers which include big brands, agencies, high level organizations and top-level executives from major industries. They are taking advantage of their intense online power and attempting to raise awareness for 4 really worth while non-profit organizations; The Humane Society, LIVESTRONG, Oxfam America, and WWF International. And of course, Swank Productions will be right there with them, helping to plan and produce this history making event!

On August 28th, Mashable will host “The Social Good Conference” at the 92nd Street Y on the upper east side. Folks will pay anywhere between $100 to $200 to come and listen to amazing keynote speakers and be a part of major social media history. 100% of the proceeds are going to the charities listed above! There will be a livestream on Facebook and live tweets all day long! A ton of high profile celebrities, web personalities and major sponsors are in contract to promote the event so keep an eye out for more news to come!

Looking forward to this event – after all Swank has always been able being Social & loving media!
Always spreading Swanky event info!
Until next time!
