Rebecca Johnson selected to run social media help desk pilot program at the california state fair 2013
Rebecca Johnson was selected to organize and run the first ever, Social Media Help Desk at the California State Fair, in Sacramento, in July 2013!
Rebecca reached out to her extended network and with the help of some awesome volunteers, was able to provide social media support to fair goers for nearly 3 weeks!
The volunteers ranged from small business owners, to Social Media Club members, to students from UC Davis and Sacramento State University.
The fair, understanding the growing need to implement social media into the fair experience, wanted a place for fair attendees to gain a deeper understanding of how some of the new features worked. Volunteers answered a variety of questions including: "What are all these bar codes I keep seeing?" "How do I download a QR code scanner?" "How do I post this picture to my Facebook account?"
Fair attendees were very receptive to the idea, since there is currently no place to get "free" social media help or advice!
My Social Media Pro also provided a social media photo kiosk for one of the weeks during the fair.
Keep an eye out , because it looks like we will be back again next year!
In the meantime, here are some pictures! Enjoy!
