You’ve heard about how social media is changing everything. You’ve even heard that it has created new business models. But what does that mean for you, and how can you find the proven, long-term models for success? Join Angela Giovine and Tina Paparone, founders of Happenings Media, as they explore the X factor that is Social Media for Entrepreneurs and Startups.
Local media expert and young entrepreneur Tina Paparone has recently drawn attention from national publications including Reuters and Under30CEO.com as one of Gen Y’s entrepreneurial thought-leaders.
Tina co-founded the empowering girl’s gift business BeMe, LLC in 2008. One year later BeMe released its first product, the BeMeBox, to rave reviews. Since then, BeMe has expanded to five product lines, available online at Want2BeMe.com.
BucksHappening.com, an online magazine and guide to Bucks County, PA, launched in 2009. With the current trend towards hyper-local websites, the site quickly experienced dramatic growth and developed into a popular online guide to the region.

In the wake of the success of BucksHappening, Happening Media was formed. Happenings Media is a rapidly-growing i-media company that owns online lifestyle magazines in cities across the country.
