Explore the social, cultural and economic impact of social media at this massive meet-up
The week-long massive meet-up devoted to exploring the social, cultural and economic impact of social media returns to New York with its sixth edition. This year, the proceedings are centralized at Highline Stages with highlights including keynotes by Buzzfeed founder and CEO Jonah Peretti and Upworthy’s Eli Pariser; a masterclass on Impulse Response hosted by the New York Times R&D Lab; an exploration into Attention Economics with TrueX; and a panel discussing Millennial habits and how they are affecting content today. In addition to the talks at the hub, there are a number of supporting events you can get in on (many are free), throughout the city.
