This past Saturday, June 30, the Social Media Meltdown cast and crew attended Social Media Day Detroit at MotorCity Casino in Detroit. Alongside other fellow enthusiasts in Detroit, everyone came together to celebrate the re-birth of the city: the start-ups, the entrepreneurial spirit, the fascination with The D, and the social media that ties all these things together.
To showcase the great minds and companies in Detroit, we did a series of interviews with some awesome people in the industry. These interviews streamed live online during the event but in case you missed them, we've posted them here!

Social media is a huge force bringing in more business, building bigger and better communities, spreading positive messages throughout Detroit and beyond, and building collaborative networks in and around Detroit. Social Media Day Detroit was in its third year running this year and it was bigger and cooler than ever.
Hopefully we can see more gatherings of people like these -- the true movers and shakers of Detroit.
