EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 16, 2011) - After only two sold out events, the Edmonton Social Media Breakfast (SMBYEG) is already becoming the premiere social media networking community in Edmonton.

McQ Design Strategies is pleased to announce a new format and direction for the third SMBYEG, to be held on Friday, February 25th at 8:30 a.m. at the CBC Centre Stage.

In the spirit of social media, SMBYEG, just like its sister group in Calgary (SMBYYC), is going to further embrace the principles of engagement, collaboration and idea sharing.

The third Edmonton Social Media Breakfast will feature a moderated discussion where the audience will shape future events and discuss exactly how to use social media to advance your business and career. The theme for the February discussion will be "Building Social Capital."

Attendees are encouraged to bring specific examples of what has and hasn't worked in their use of social media tools, online marketing and networking in general.

Stay after the discussion to network and share ideas within the realm of social media. Marketers, PR pros, entrepreneurs, bloggers, podcasters, new-media fanatics, and online social networkers are all welcome to attend.

Seating is limited and fills up quickly so hurry to book your place on Eventbrite.com.

SMBYEG houses an open environment to share today's best and worst examples of social media, as practiced by individuals, industries and organizations in Edmonton and around the world. Guest speakers share their experience and expertise of social media use, followed by an opportunity to network with a community of like-minded individuals.

The SMB was founded by Bryan Person in August 2007 as an event for social media newbies and experts to come together to eat, meet, share, and learn. The breakfast series began in Boston and has now spread to more than three dozen cities around the world. The Calgary and Edmonton chapters of the SMB were started by Scott Baird of McQ Design Strategies as a place for social media enthusiasts to discuss effective practices and new techniques.
