In a few short years, online communications have changed dramatically. From blogging to Facebook to Twitter, more and more people are participating in the conversation online. For continued effective communication, using these tools is not optional, itâ€™s required … or is it?
Alex de Carvalho, co-founder of StartPR and adjunct professor of social media at the University of Miami, and Murray Izenwasser, Director of Client Strategy, Interactive Services for Starmark International, will discuss how social media is changing marketing, PR, and the way we work and live. What opportunities and challenges do we face with these tools? How do we understand and participate in communities in our current age of many-to-many media? How can we use them to drive real business?
