Social media analytics can help you understand the active members of your social media audience, but what about the people who aren't posting? How do you fill in the gaps in your analytics with insight into your customers' purchases, your fans' offline interests, or your users' reasons for liking what they like?
Find a new way of tackling these questions in a session that shares a new approach to social media insight, and see how some of the web's leading thinkers are answering their research questions by combining social media analytics with survey data. Find out how this brings new insight to a 90,000-person study of the collaborative economy; how it enhances what we know about online fundraising; and what it tells Discovery about how social media users watch TV. Whether you're looking for fresh insight on what makes social media users tick, or trying to expand your own monitoring and analytics program, this session will give you a first look at the latest data and research methods.
