Event description

Description

In the midst of a Social Media crisis - where privacy breaches, social manipulation and world domination are a real concern - we will talk with specialists to unveil the truth about Social Media; and find the answer (or answers) to the million-dollar question – Should I bother using Social Media for my start-up/business/personal brand?

The Good - The access to affordable advertising options and the opportunity of building and engaging a community of customers.

The Bad - The myth of organic traffic, vanity metrics, measuring ROI and reputation management.

The Ugly - User trust issues, fake accounts, fake news, bot takeover.

And much more!

If you are an entrepreneur, founder, business owner or just curious about what our digital future has in store, join us and discover the different ways that you can (and cannot) use Social Media to scale your business, attract investors and become a recognizable brand.
