Social Media Breakfasts Coming To Toronto

Joseph Thornley and the Third Tuesday Toronto organizers are bringing Social Media Breakfasts to Toronto.

Bryan Person founded the concept of Social Media Breakfasts in August 2007 as an event where social media experts and newbies alike come together to eat, meet, share, and learn. Marketers, PR pros, entrepreneurs, bloggers, podcasters, new-media fanatics, and online social networkers are all welcome to attend.

Simon Chen, Rob Lane and Ryan Anderson, brought the Social Media Breakfast to Canada for the first time earlier this year and the event is now also moving down the 401 to the big smoke.

Given the never-ending array of social media groups we already have in Toronto, I wasn’t sure about the idea of bringing Social Media Breakfasts to the city when I first thought of it, but I’ve come around. We’ll know when we reach a saturation point for events in Toronto, and we don’t seem to be there yet. Until that time, the more people we can reach, help and educate at these events the better.

Can you help?

I’m helping out with the organizing group – can you?

Joe has put out a call for hosts and sponsors for the Social Media Breakfast:

We need help finding a location in Toronto where we can hold the Social Media Breakfast. Do you have a meeting room or open concept office that could accommodate up to 100 people for a 7:30AM to 9AM meetup? If so, would you consider hosting the first breakfast?

Even if you can’t host the event, would you be able to help us by sponsoring the breakfast or sound system?

What can we give you in return for hosting or sponsoring the Social Media Breakfast? Recognition in blog posts, on the Social Media Breakfast Website and at the event itself. And the sincere gratitude of a large and growing social media community.

If you would like to help get Toronto’s Social Media Breakfasts up and running, leave a comment here or head over to and raise your hand there.
