Last week I attended my first ever Scrum Gathering in Orlando. A big part of my voluntary duties was to enhance the experience through use of social media.
Just for fun, I tabulated some numbers on social media throughput by myself and conference goers:
- 1500+ Twitter posts with #sgus hash tag
- 100+ Flickr photos (and likely more to come as people tag and upload their pics)
- 17 Youtube videos
- 78 event blog posts and counting. Close to 2,000 site views.
- All Twitter posts and about 35 Twitter pics with #sgus tag (here and here) posted to the live blog.
The Twitter fountain was a big hit. We set it up in the conference hallway one day and inside the open space ballroom the next. People enjoyed seeing tweets and photos appear live on screen.
In a follow-up post, I’ll explain more about the why and how of social media at the conference, what worked in my mind and what didn’t, and what I would do next time.
