Oct 28, heading to Digital Media Conference West in the am

I am excited about being on a panel at the Digital Media Contest West tomorrow from 11:20-12:05 –Breaking Down Social Media: Opportunities & Challenges for
Content Owners, Brands & Marketers

This panel of industry experts will discuss the future of social media,
with a focus on consumer trends, marketing programs and content
development. As a brand, marketer or content owner, how can social
media improve your current marketing and customer acquisition
initiatives? What is the opportunity for brands and marketers to target
and reach potential consumers through social networks? How are social
networks evolving to incorporate advertising programs and licensed
content while addressing privacy and piracy concerns? This panel of
experts will get under the hood and provide answers to the questions
people are asking about the future of social media.
