Post the “FREE Social Media Workshop” at Jordan University #SMJU

I held a Free Full Day Social Media Workshop at Jordan university.

Free Venue was provided by Dr. Moudar Zgoulย of Jordan University

Free Wi-Fi and 3G was provided by Zain

Free Coffee Break was provided by Nescafe

Thank you to Mr. Shishani for playing all the videos

Thank you to all my friends and volunteers

Thank you for ZainJO Social media team for the support

The crowd was around 260 and I went through What Social Media is, the evolution from traditional to new media, introduced everybody to the Google Family, we played around with Tools R Us, talked about Twitter and explained the stages of becoming a Twitter addict ๐Ÿ™‚

Also talked about twitter etiquette and here is a tweet that I wanted to share with crowd:
“ุชุบุฑูŠุฏุงุชูƒ ุงู„ุณูŠุงุณูŠุฉ ุงู„ู…ุชุตู„ุจุฉ ุฌุนู„ุชู†ูŠ ุฃุฎูŠุฑุง ุฃู‚ุชู†ุน ุจุขุฑุงุฆูƒ ูˆุฃุนูŠุฏ ุงู„ู†ุธุฑ ููŠ ูƒู„ ู…ุจุงุฏุฆู‰ ู„ุชุชู…ุงุดู‰ ู…ุน ุฃููƒุงุฑูƒ” ุชุบุฑูŠุฏุฉ ู„ู† ุชู‚ุฑุฃู‡ุง ุฃุจุฏุงย #ReformJOย #SMJU

Talked a little about Facebook new features, watched some case studies, then introduced LinkedIn, Foursquare, Pinterest & Instagram

Iย trulyย enjoyed ย every minute of the workshop although my body says otherwise (but he will get over it)

There was ongoing interaction, although the hashtag for the event was #SMJU a new one came to life #AskZamil

Here are some Photos of the event:


According to @Hashtracking #SMJU generated 2.6K Tweets | 337 Contributors | 4.7Mil Impressions | 382K Reach

Thank you for attending

    I can’t thank you enough for this Khaled. Every time I learn something new from you!

    The best thing about it was engaging the audiences in a very smooth and natural way! Almost everyone was asking and participating via twitter. It was also great to ask everyone following the hashtag #SMJU to follow each other, I’ve got lots of new followers just by attending!

    I loved the Twitter Etiquette part and it was good to learn that I am a stage seven twitter addict ๐Ÿ˜‰ I mean I’ve changed my twitter handle to match my blog’s name: SinbadTheVC and I only tweet about startups, VC investments, entrepreneurship and related events. So I guess I am at stage 7 now, right?

    BTW, there was a third hash tag for the event, check out #ShusmoRocks

    Eye-opening experience. There is so much out there to learn! I’ll be “riding the wave to maturity” until I reach Level 7 of Twitter addiction! Of course something new will pop up and I’ll look to you for guidance.

  • Sari AlHiari

    Its been a unique session in where Khaled provided very useful information that should and does normally cost money for free “Its a free workshop”.

    I enjoyed my time there and met more than a few interesting people. All in all, AAA level event from the presenter to the audience, venue, content, ..etc. There is definitely potential for something bigger, and I think Khaled can repeat the success he achieved as a founding father of AmmanTT in something new.
