Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday Apr 14 will be “The Value (or not) of Social Media and How to Respond to Your Client Who Wants It”, with Mark Phillips
TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)
This talk introduces a conceptual framework for deciding the value of social media and applications of that framework to help decide which social media tools and software components will be effective. It draws on research on user adoption and behavioral economics to present a decision making framework that is robust and has predictive value. It looks at the relationship between social networking, privacy, permission boundaries and user adoption. We will discuss specific social media components that audience members would include in their toolset. Finally, a way to think about social media that doesn’t rely on hype.
