Social Networking and the Atlanta Java User Group
The Atlanta Java User Group has certainly a very healthy membership basis. We have 1400 subscribers to our announcement mailing list as well as 600 subscribers to the general membership mailing list. 11 days ago I created a group on LinkedIn for the Atlanta Java User Group in order to increase the visibility of the group. Previously, I had already become a member of the Java Posse LinkedIn Group and wanted to provide the same exposure to the Atlanta Java User Group. It has been quite exciting to see the rapid adoption rate. Within 48 hours we had 100 sign-ups and yesterday we hit 155 subscribers. It seems that social networking is becoming an essential tool to IT professionals these days.
