Social media has been known to help millions of people in areas of their lives you’d never thought possible.
Take the recent news headlines of the “Burger King Baby” who was searching for her birth mother. After a quick post on Facebook, before she knew it her photo and story went viral—which ultimately lead her to her mom.
In Colorado, there are many uses of social media that can help you in your personal, private and professional lives. If you just moved here, you can find groups of people online from your home state. If you’re an avid runner, you can find running groups. For professionals, you can join an online networking group for business card exchanges and elbow-rubbing.
So in no particular order, Colorado Media Network rallies up five Colorado Networking Groups on Social Media.
1. Denver Divas:
Throw on your heels and get ready to mix and mingle with professional women in the Denver area. Denver Divas meets the first Tuesday of every month at a different venue. Follow them on Facebook to find out where the gals will be heading next month: Denver Divas on Facebook
