GrapevineStar Media Event Alert – Social Media’s Next Stage

At this August’s Social Media Insider Summit, MediaPost’s fifth, major players in social media and marketing will grapple with these issues, and others affecting the future of this still burgeoning industry. Executives will tell you what they think the outlook is for such foundational platforms as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

Going Forward: Social Media’s Next Stage

It’s been a headline-making year for social media. Twitter has continued in its role as the real-time, go-to platform about what’s going on around the world; Facebook went public; a number of major solution providers consolidated; and mobile social gained increasing traction as consumers continued to flock to new devices of all kinds, from smartphones to iPads.

But even as the industry moves towards fast-moving maturity, it has a lot of work to do. Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn are still firming up their business and ad models; mobile marketing – to many people – is still a conundrum, and there are, of course, continuing concerns about how to responsibly use Big Data to better target potential customers. And then there are newer platforms, such as Pinterest, which raise as many questions as there are marketing opportunities.

At this August’s Social Media Insider Summit, MediaPost’s fifth, major players in social media and marketing will grapple with these issues, and others affecting the future of this still burgeoning industry. Executives will tell you what they think the outlook is for such foundational platforms as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. There will be discussions about some of the new, image-based social media, advertiser case studies, and our popular consumer panel, where we ask social media users how they are really using the medium. And that just scrapes the surface of what promises to be three memorable days of insight and networking.

Take a step forward with us. Otherwise, you’ll be a step behind
