The First Annual Austin Social Media Awards nominees have been announced by the Austin American Statesman.
Several of my friends have been nominated (I list them below with links to their blogs / websites).
If you live in Central Texas (or beyond) and are still confused by social media, this is a comprehensive list of people you could reach out to and better understand the medium.
You can click on the above hyper-links to see the whole list, but below is a list of folks I know well whom are nominees. I know some of the others by name, just not on a personal basis. Yes, there is a difference between following someone on Twitter and actually being their friend!!! I still believe that people claim "friendship" too fast in the social media world. A connection on Facebook is NOT an equal relationship to my my connection with my kid's godparents!!!.

Congratulations to all the nominees and especially to my friends who made the list.
Have A Great Day.
