Social media came to the fore with the rise in the popularity of social networks. Borne out of the idea to allow users to not only talk to each other but also to relate to each other, they have gained growing influence on purchase decisions. Once misinterpreted as a modern day “chat room” that has no implications on your business, brands are now harvesting social media to gauge perception and actual campaign performance. In today’s world of the growing customer voice, you need to understand, engage and connect to customers on their turf – and their turf means places like social networks.

Web 2.0 expert Yuval Zukerman will provide a comprehensive lesson on social media. During this presentation he’ll delve into the types, categories, and characteristics of social media, giving a wealth of examples. Who’s using this next generation online get-together? Yuval will share that too, along with research demographics, and user and usage statistics. You’ll get an inside look at what features users are clamoring for, as well as what issues, such as privacy and safety, are playing a role in the future of social networks. Once Yuval has transformed you into a social networking guru, he’ll also provide tips on how you can utilize this new Web 2.0 connectivity phenomenon as a marketing means, with real world examples on who’s doing it and how.
