Are you a Social Media influencer/follower, a VMware community member, a virtualization/cloud expert, or just a VMworld conference fan? For all of these and all others attending or following the VMworld 2011 Conference, here is the guide you must view or download.
VMworld 2011 will be rocking the Twitter social streams over the next couple weeks. If you are not on Twitter already, be sure to tune in during VMworld to observe how viral and explosive Twitter can be. You can literally follow the entire show through tweets from attendees.
Photos - Post photos on our Facebook wall - Post your photos into a Flickr account or group (be sure to tag all photos with "vmworld") - Twitpic, Yfrog or Instagram (be sure to tag w/ "vmworld" or include #vmworld in all postings) - VMworld.com Photos page (sign-in and post photos from the conference)
To be launched next week: "Experience VMworld 2011 Online" -- an online shared experience for the show following a daily agenda covering many of the events and activity via Twitter, Blogs, Video, Photos and more (no session access). This is offered to provide an online show experience for anyone who can not attend the conference. It is also a great way for attendees to view more of the show content online that they miss in person.
VMworld 2011 (Las Vegas) is fast approaching and VMworld tweets and blog postings are building momentum. To help collaboration and exposure for these social media efforts at the conference, we have created wiki documents on VMworld.com for Twitter and Blogger contributor lists.
VMworld attendees and non-attendees who will be contributing tweets or blog postings for can add themselves to these lists. These lists are available for the community to view and share or to use for meet-ups and attendance checks at the conference. We will also use this list of contributors to enable feeds of VMworld content on VMworld.com and at the conference.
