CINCINNATI - Sometimes the online world meets offline, or IRL (in real life).
In Cincinnati, there’s an opportunity for new connections among people who already feel like old friends, thanks to social media.
Social Media Day-Cincinnati Style will unite Tri-State tweeters, Yelpers, Instagrammers and Facebook friends on Sunday, June 30 from 2-4 p.m. at The Pub in Rookwood.
“We are really, really lucky that we have such a strong social media community. Cincinnati does have a great core of social media people,” said Debba Haupert, organizer of the event and founder of the popular Girlfriendology blog.
It’s the third year for the event, which was first organized when Mashable named Cincinnati one of the top three most social cities in the country.
