Social Times Update

Over the past month I have been trying to come up with a strategy for The Social Times. It started as an expansion of my AllFacebook blog. I began covering social technology and planned on sticking to that plan. Since then I have been modifying my strategy. The plan has finally manifested itself into something that I think is going to be extremely valuable for both readers and writers. The new mission of the Social Times is

To empower passionate individuals to cover the topics that they are most passionate about while learning the ropes of new media. We are a breeding ground for new media professionals and entrepreneurs.

I will start off by focusing my efforts on the Washington D.C. metro area. We will have multiple channels that will focus on local content but I will also continue to cover the evolution of social technology in general. Social technology will only be one channel though. Over the coming months there will be a lot of changes taking place at The Social Times. I am proud to announce that I have hired my first employee, Anthony LaFauce.

Over the next month we will be hosting events around the metro area and will be updating our design to reflect our multi-channel strategy. As media evolves I am finding that it is empowering for individuals to write about topics that they are passionate about. Our job at The Social Times is to get the writers paid through advertising as well as provide educational sessions with media professionals (journalists, editors, producers, etc).

The initial channels we are covering are social technology, food and arts. If you are interested in covering any of these topics please reach out to me and let me know. We will get you on a list and I will be having a meetup for everyone involved in The Social Times within the next month. I believe that we are in the middle of a media revolution and I want The Social Times to help drive the movement. It is truly an ambitious vision but together we can accomplish it. I look forward to the future.
