Social Media Breakfast is coming to Tech Valley! Follow @smbtv on Twitter for updates, read about SMB-TV  or join our Facebook group.

Social Media Breakfast was founded by Bryan Person in August 2007 as an event where social media experts and newbies alike come together to eat, meet, share, and learn. Marketers, PR pros, entrepreneurs, bloggers, podcasters, new-media fanatics, and online social networkers are all welcome to attend.

The breakfast series began in Boston and has now spread to more than 20 cities throughout the United States and around the world. It is being brought to Tech Valley by Amy Mengel and with help from Patrick Boegel and generous sponsorship from All Over Albany and SUNY Cobleskill.

Tech Valley's first event will include networking and a panel discussion. Based on the feedback and questions received through the registration process, we'll ask speakers to touch on a variety of topics like social media strategy and monitoring, key social media tools, and case studies of effective use of social media. Our guest speakers are:
