Social Media Club Ulaanbaatar

The Social Media Club connects media makers from around the world to promote media literacy, industry standards, ethical behavior and to share the lessons they have learned. Chris Heuer and Kristie Wells started Social Media Club (SMC) in March of 2006 and this community enables you explore your personal and professional passions by helping you connect with a community of group your peers based on both geography and areas of interest.

Our Tag Line: If you get it, share it
Our Mission: Expand digital media literacy, promote standard technologies, encourage ethical behavior and share the best practices.

We bring together journalists, publishers, communications professionals, artists, amateur media creators, citizen journalists, teachers, students, tool makers, and other interested collaborators. We are more than just USERS, we are the reason the tools exist - we are the people who communicate our thoughts and ideas near and far.
