I'm a huge fan of Chris's blog. He is always sharing ideas and suggestions. This book is a collection of some of his blog entries. If you are new to social media this is a must read book. It will provide you with steps on how to get started. If you have been active for a while, this is a great refresher. ( )

Five Things to Do at a Social Networking Meet-Up
Content from author Chris Brogan

Meet-ups (and, more recently, “tweetups,” which are meet-ups organized via Twitter) are the online manifestation of our social networking efforts. With Twitter and Upcoming.org and Facebook and all the other social networks, putting together a bunch of like-minded people is relatively simple. You find a venue that doesn’t mind a bunch of nerds, preferably with a place you can be loud (because social media types are often the loudest bunch in there, unless there’s a bachelorette party), and, hopefully, some delightful libations to ease social interaction. But what do you do there, once you’ve walked in and identified that you’re in the right place? Here’s a recipe.

Say Hi to Your Known Friends
Oftentimes, someone at the meet-up is known to you. Make sure you say hi to that person earlier in the night rather than later. I’m working on this one, because sometimes, I’ll be somewhere with friends and never get over to see them because time gets eaten up so fast. I’m going to make a point of saying hi to my longer-known friends first at meet-ups, so that they’ll feel acknowledged.

Find the New People
Look for folks who might be new to your local scene, or those you haven’t met before, and introduce yourself. My favorite opening line is to ask them what they normally do when they’re not hanging out with a bunch of Twitter geeks. If that doesn’t work, I like to ask people about their passions.

Don’t Crowd-Surf Too Much
There’s a tendency that’s easy to follow to just flit among the crowd. It’s not a wedding. You don’t have to hit every table. If you find something interesting, don’t be afraid to dive deep into the conversation for a bit. Get into some deeper waters with people, because otherwise, time will wash over you like a wave and you’ll be out without much to show for it.

If You Need to Do Business
Try to think of these meetups as a first date. Don’t put your tongue down our throats. In other words, if you’re there fishing for new business, play it cool and be part of the gang. Talk about what’s relevant, and don’t swerve instantly into your line of business and how you can help (sell) us. However, it’s okay to say that you’re hoping to build business relationships or the like. Just save the details for a follow-up conversation.

Talk About Something New
Whenever possible, bring along some really neat new idea to throw into the mix. Think of it as mental show-and-tell. Or, if you have a nifty new something to show people, do real-world show-and-tell. Bringing something new to the meetup will enrich everything. (Don’t force it into the conversation, but have something new in mind.)
