Exploring Social Media Usage, Business Models and Technologies for the Living Room

From the integration of Facebook and Twitter into Verizon's FiOS to the new viewing party capability in the Xbox Live's Netflix application, there is no doubt that many in the digital home space see the social web's next destination as the TV screen. But will consumers go for it?  

At next week's Streaming Media West show we've got Michael Wolf, VP
of Research at GigaOm, moderating a panel on the use of social media in
the living room. The session will discuss how the social web will extend into the living
room, while also exploring how social media and real-time web can -if
ever – be monetized in a TV context.
