Hi Jerry - In our experience there is no way around posting an event in
multiple places because some people spend most of their web time on
Facebook, some spend most of it on Twitter and some prefer local niche
networks like Hawaii Threads, TechHui, etc. Its best to cast a wide net, but only post to relevant areas in relevant sites to avoid being viewed as spammy.

Mika linked the event up here.

One of the problems with Social Media is there are so many choices - fbook, here, personal blogs, corp sponsor blogs, twitter, etc.  I'm not one of the Social Media User Group organizers but figured there may some interest here.  

How do others deal with the plethora of SMedia sites?  How do you target your audience?  Known people are easier - they can be on your mail list or blog feed subscribers.  But how do you get the word out so new people can find your events/group?
