WLRN’s Under the Sun Keeps Social Media Event Under Wraps


 

The only thing worse than the Social Media Puto not being invited to a Social Media Party is to hear his friends raving about what a great time they had at that party.

After all, partying is what is all about for the Social Media Puto.

So he was disappointed to learn that several of his Social Media Friends attended the WLRN Under the Sun  “brainstorm session” Thursday night and nobody told him about it.

It’s not like he doesn’t follow WLRN on Twitter. He understands enough about Social Media that you have to follow a company in order to cash in on their parties.

It’s just that WLRN tweeted about it only once. And it was a pretty vague tweet at that.  Last Sunday, in fact, which might as well be last year.

And if they don’t mention free sex, booze or food in the tweet, the Social Media Puto is likely to ignore it.

This is their sole tweet on the event.

And while it’s true that a “brainstorm session” is likely to involve discussions on “metrics” and “SEO”and “branding” and “engagement,” terms that bore the hell out of the Social Media Puto, the event was described as a “Social Media Mixer” on Facebook by his Social Media Friend, Blanca Mejia, who is known as Miami Shines on Twitter.

And if you look at the photo Blanca posted on her Facebook wall, you can see everybody has little green plates in front of them and there is even a few bottles on the table. So there was some indulging to go along with the engaging.

 

The Social Media Puto wasn’t the only person who felt excluded, judging by the comments on Blanca’s photos. Even James Echols of Soul of Miami said he had not heard of the event. And that guy hears and attends almost every event in Miami. He might even be more of a Social Media Whore than the Social Media Puto himself.

But perhaps WLRN deliberately kept the event low key to prevent the Social Media Puto and his whorish element from crashing the party. After all, it looks like this group is more serious about the brainstorming than the boozing. They don’t even appear concerned that their glasses are all empty.

    Hey you got paid to go to SXSW, stop bitching!

    By the way, all we did here was help WLRN with social media tips. They brought us in for free consultation.

    It appears some of you are now on the right track to bring about chagne. This blog alone will not get anything done. If they are really needed and those with the interest are persistent and willing to stand up you will find eventually public opinion will become more evident. If a common sense approach it taken and credibility is maintained throughout the process it’s possible to make the desired progress. Of course that depends on the politicians being reasonable and responsive to public opinion. Frankly, I had no idea there was no contract with the City Attorney, and have no idea why this is the case. I haven’t really looked into the issue. But,it seems to me since the city always enters into contracts with service providers there should be one with the city attorney as well. He provides one of the most important services the city needs to function properly The county negotiates a salary and benefit agreement with their attorney, so I assume all this is in a contract. Why not the city? It’s a good question that needs to be seriously reviewed.

    You may call it paranoia. And you may also be corerct that the comment that followed was completely harmless. But where is the harm in the question, fishwalton? As someone who is actively involved in local events, you more than anyone should know that it is the right of every citizen to speak out. To question. To disagree.If, as you suggest, Comander’s comment was innocuous, then where is the harm in the Free Press raising the question? Clearly, someone who was at the meeting is well within their rights to comment accordingly. Comander herself has every right to comment.Our point is this: Comander is savvy. She understands how things work. She understands that appearance is sometimes as important as fact. As such, she understands that, EVEN IF her comment is completely unrelated, she creates a certain level of suspicion by making a concerted effort to turn off the recorder before continuing.Please notice we have simply raised a question: why was it necessary to turn off the audio?Just as you are well within your right to trust those involved, we are well within our right to question them.
