Facebook The Night Away at The #BlueJeansBall

By Shamia Holloway April 8, 2011

Hello Internet! I wanted to write a quick post to you about the 8th Annual Blue Jeans Ball and give you some inside info on what you can expect to see from a social media perspective. First of all you should use your incredibly powerful and stylish smart phones to check into the Blue Jeans Ball Facebook event using the Facebook mobile app, it’s not too late to RSVP! You should also consider snapping plenty of pictures on those state of the art gadgets and tagging your friendsĀ on Facebook so you can share the event with your friends and families. The best pictures of that night will be featured on massive 10′ screens so dress to impress and don’t forget to upload your pictures to Facebook!
This year, a number of our colleagues and attendees will be tweeting all night to document the event in order to keep our offsite followers up-to-date. We hope that you support us by retweeting any tweets you find particularly amusing. We’ll be using the hashtag #BlueJeansBall so if want to follow along and join the conversation, you’ll need to include that in your tweet. In return for your generous social media love, we’ll feature your tweets and re-tweets on the massive 10-foot screens in the middle of the Blue Jeans Ball. You’ll pretty much be famous within seconds amongst the hundreds of attendees, so have at it! We’ll also have a team from iStrategyLabs running around, capturing footage of the amazing spread provided by the area’s best restaurants; we’ll post a recap video on Facebook of that footage later in the month with the intention of coaxing you out to next year’s Blue Jeans Ball.
As always, you can find us on Facebook and Twitter @foodbankmetrodc, and you can join the conversation by including the hashtag #BlueJeansBall in your tweets. We look forward to the deluge of social media goodness on Sunday night, and thank you to all that already follow us and continually show us love by reading our posts and talking about us all over the Facebook and Twitter.
