Social TV: Where’s the Money? Find Out Next Week In LA At The #smwest Show

In a world cluttered with badges, check-ins, stickers, hashtags, likes, plusses, apps, and so many other terms, is there any real money being exchanged in the world called Social TV? Are users “engaging” with “conversations” about “social” programming or are they sitting on their couch texting with their friends? TV is inherently a social medium, and people are tweeting and liking things, so there’s some smoke – but where’s the fire?

At the Streaming Media West show next week, (#smwest) this panel will dive into the fire and try to emerge with some real answers about what’s happening today, and where the business opportunities are tomorrow. Lead by smart TV guru Jeremy Toeman, confirmed speakers include:

  • Moderator: Jeremy Toeman, CEO, Dijit
  • Pete Scott, VP, Emerging Media, Turner Sports
  • Erin Gargan, President, SoCal Socialite
  • Mark Ghunheim, CEO, Trendrr
  • Allan McLennan, CEO, Padem Group
