The first meeting of the Devon Social Media Cafe (DSMC) has been hailed as a ‘great success’ by all those who attended.

35 people were at the evening event, held at Bar Ha Ha in Plymouth, which was designed to give an opportunity for social media users from the county to meet in person and to become a forum for businesses and organisation to exchange ideas on how to best use social media.

Some of the tweets we received following the event:

@mydogateart back from @devoncafe event – nice to meet real people (you know what i mean…it’s late) – thanx for organising #plymouth #devon
@ShelleyFletcher @Laura_McKay2009 it was good. @devoncafe had a good crowd.  Great start and will be good to link up with @csmc too.
@devonshiretea @BestTourGuide I met @katycreates at Morwellham at weekend – couldn’t make it last eve other commit… GR8 to know @DevonCafe was success!!

The event opened with an introduction from the organisers, public relation consultants, PR Dogs, followed by Aren Grimshaw, one of the organisers behind Cornwall Social Media Cafe, who spoke to the group about the recent Cornwall Twestival.

Director of PR Dogs John Taynton said: “We are delighted that so many people could attend and have had really positive feedback. We’d like to especially thank those guests who made it up from Cornwall in order to be there.

“It’s great to solidify links that are initiated online with a meeting like this and we’re looking forward to extending the concept of the social media cafe over the next few months. Thanks again to everyone who attended or sent their apologies. Watch this space for more news on October’s meeting.”
