Social Mix Super Social Extravaganza!
We’re less than two months away from our very first Social Mix charitable conference, and things are really heating up! We’re bringing some of the best of the best in the social media marketing industry to Toronto’s Fairmont Royal York Hotel for a day of industry insight and thought leadership.
From internationally known Internet entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk to TV personality and tech expert Amber Mac, we’ve lined up a dynamite all-star cast to share their wisdom with you. We aim to thrill you, chill you, and fulfil you with transforming trends, powerful predictions, and socially savvy sentiments.
Best of all, we’ve partnered with Toronto’s landmark Fairmont Royal York Hotel to bring you a conference experience you won’t soon forget, and it’s all in support of The Remix Project.
Join Jugnoo and the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in supporting Toronto’s disadvantaged youth, and help make a difference in our community. By attending our Social Mix charitable conference, you’ll help fund an organization that gives youth a chance to build promising careers.
Our early bird extravaganza ticket prices are in effect until June 18—get yours today!

This just in: Jugnoo project manager Timothy Bramble has been outed as Honest Ed’s biggest fan!
For those of you outside of the Greater Toronto Area, Honest Ed’s can only be described as a quirky spectacle of a department store; one that has attracted generations of Toronto residents and visitors from far and wide.
From the airbrushed plaster Elvis busts to the bins of $0.99 poly-cotton underpants, Honest Ed’s reigns supreme in the art of shilling tacky, budget-conscious clothing and housewares of questionable quality.
(Just kidding, Ed—we love you! Where else can you buy ugly polyester sweaters for just 5.99??)
Honest Ed’s is quite legendary, and we here at Jugnoo were absolutely shocked when we were given a behind-the-scenes look at the nuts and bolts of the online community.
The Honest Ed’s Facebook fan page—the only online space for Ed’s honest fans to connect—is actually not affiliated with Honest Ed’s at all.
Yes that’s right—the community is actually the work of just one fabulous fan. *Drumroll please* It’s Jugnoo’s own Timothy “T-Dawgg” Bramble!
Timothy started the Facebook fan page shortly after he came over here from jolly olde England in 2009.
Three years and a few posts later, the Honest Ed’s Facebook fan community is growing strong.
As Timothy reports, “Engagement levels are sky-high—I keep getting all these messages from people looking for jobs!”
We concur. Keep up the good work, Timothy! Support his efforts here.
Adopt Me Maybe?
This week on the Interwebz, there’s campaign that has everyone’s attention. Whether or not you consider yourself an animal lover, you can’t help but *squee* at Anthony Rubio’s ingenious “Adopt Me Maybe” PR campaign.
The entire movement has been propelled by just one photo: Two Chihuahuas looking earnestly off camera, dressed in what appears to be wizard robe sweaters.
The looks and the adorkable outfits, combined with a card featuring a witty play on Carly Rae Jepson’s “Call Me Maybe” lyrics, have made the photo a smash hit on social networks.
We commend you, Anthony—not just for nobly spreading the word about shelter adoptions, but also your ability to take the “Call Me Maybe” song and turn it into something truly useful.
It’s proof that you don’t need a budget to get results; you just need the right idea. We’re loving it!
That’s all for this week–keep it realz, yo.Honest Ed’s photo credit: Stewart Russell on Flickr
