Using Social Media for Events & Recap of #OSCC13 for the September 20th NonProfit Commons Meeting

This Friday, September 20th Nonprofit Commons is happy to have Beth O'”Connell (Beth Ghostraven in SL) lead our Mentor’s Central in a presentation on how to use social media such as Google+, Facebook, Twitter, and Second Life group notices, to attract more people to your events. These tools can be used to promote any type of event, virtual, online or in person.

We will also feature a recap of the recent OpenSimulator Community Conference (OSCC13) which took place September 7th & 8th, 2013. OSCC is an annual conference that focuses on the community around the OpenSimulator software. This year’s conference featured two days of presentations, workshops, keynote sessions, and social events across diverse sectors of the OpenSimulator user base and archives can be found at:
