As part of our Coworking session last Wednesday we had our meetup at Mind Unwind, our temporary Coworking space.
Kerrie, Kelly, Deborah, Jane and Jason shared their knowledge about Social Media. We talked about LinkedIn and all it's features, some which we find confusing, like the skill recommendation. Deborah shared with us that she recently learnt that these can be edited now, so it's better manageable for what you want your network to recommend you for. We talked about using the official 'meetup' for social media, also twitter and facebook.
WS Office Junction (@WSOfficeJunction) uses twitter for event postings and connecting with local businesses and other coworking spaces as well as for preparing for the upcoming Coworking Conference in Austin (#GCUC). We post interesting articles and infographics about Coworking and our events on Facebook. We use LinkedIn (WS Coworking) for member networking, discussions and polls. A meetup summary with a link to the latest blog posts, events and newest updates goes out per weekly email newsletter. To receive our newsletter, leave your email address on our Contact page.
We made a short round of introductions, talked about our projects and Christine introduced her environmental and educational community project. Visit the West Seattle Bee Garden website to support a great mission.
Then we talked about the possibilities of Coworking in our permanent space. We looked at some pictures of the space. Stefan and Laura joined us right after that and we brainstormed what we want to see and do in the space. We all got pretty excited. We haven't signed yet, but work on a lease agreement. So, wish us luck this will work out and we will soon be able to do some great Coworking together.
