Here at #LATISM, we’re sooooo ready for 2011!!!

And tonight, we’re going to say goodbye to 2010 in style: It’s #LATISM’s Year-End Twitter party!

If 2009 was the year Latinos came to social media, there’s no doubt that 2010 was the year we arrived… with 80 percent of Latinos using social sites, 19% blogging and leading the mobile usage wave, we are posed to continue dramatically impacting food, fashion, beauty, entertainment, and technology/communications for years to come.

One thing is for sure: Latinos unite under the #LATISM banner!


–       We fundraised for Haiti and Chile

–       We cheered for our favorite teams during the World Cup [our LATISM World Cup Twitter party hit over 5.4 million impressions!]

–       We took 14 Latina bloggers to the BlogHer Conference

–       We cheered together for the Chilean Miners

–       We shared our thoughts on the Mid-term Elections [our LATISM Get Out the Vote party hit over 8.1 million impressions!]

–       We launched the first-ever Latina Blogger Survey, which was promptly embraced by the media

–       We’re about to end the year with a bang with not one but two initiatives geared to foster Education: our BlissDom Conference Scholarship and the 1st Annual LATISM Adopts a Library program!

Along the way, we came together to discuss the topics that make us Latinos: Education, Racism, Sexism, the Economy, Anti-immigrant sentiment, the Dream Act… but mostly, we celebrated our Latinidad: our music, food, literature, and the trends shaping our beautiful culture. In other words, we took ownership of the social media space and the way that Latinos are perceived in America.

Tonight, we will take inventory of the LATINO DEFINING MOMENTS of this year and our hopes and plans for the next… We’ll also be announcing the winner of our LATISM BlissDom Scholarship!

Join us and help us shape your favorite online community: Latinos in Social Media [LATISM]!!
