Dave Copeland to speak at the Social Discovery Conference in San Francisco
Dave Copeland, reporter at ReadWriteWeb will lead a panel on Social Discovery at the August 6-7, 2012 Social Discovery Conference in San Francisco.
New York, NY--Ticonderoga Ventures, Inc. announces that Dave Copeland will speak at the upcoming SocialDiscovery.org conference on August 6-7, 2012 in San Francisco.
Dave Copeland is a reporter for ReadWriteWeb, and will discuss with other leading executives in the social discovery field best practices. Joining him are senior executives from Gigya, StumbleUpon, Family iBoard, Identified.com and others. Copeland will ask the executives what works, what doesn't and what they expect to happen next as they try to adapt their businesses to the ever changing field of social discovery.
Social discovery has quickly become a leading trend in social media and social networking. Users join specific communities that share interests, and learn of new people, places and things. Social discovery sites have recently experienced higher levels of growth than traditional social networking models.
Some examples of social discovery sites include Pinterest, TheFancy, Foursquare, Yelp, Highlight and Weotta.
Social discovery sites are well positioned to promote products and services. Mirroring the conditions of human search, users discover products and services that their social connections like and recommend. This implies a higher level of performance in terms of conversion and sales, something a traditional social network generally lacks.
