Next Meeting: Social Media and Politics

We’ve all talked about how much the last presidential race was affected by social media. But, have you spent much time discussing how politics and social media are intersecting in our area? Do you want to?

Join us on Saturday, Oct. 24 at 10 a.m. at the Cincinnati Public Library downtown (room 3A) for the next Cincinnati Women Bloggers meeting. It’s sure to be an interesting event, and we thought it would be timely with election day right around the corner. I’ll be adding additional information about our speakers soon. But, in the meantime, you can RSVP by commenting on this post. Hope to see you there!

Update: Meet Our Speakers

This week’s speakers will be Jane Prendergast of the Cincinnati Enquirer and Kathy Groob, who founded ElectWomen Magazine.

She has the distinction of breaking this summer’s Twittergate scandal, in which one councilwoman tweeted during a council meeting that another “does not know when to shut up.” She has worked at The Enquirer 20 years. She contributes to the paper’s politics blog, Politics Extra,  and on twitter @janeprendergast
