Event Details:

While social networks have already transformed the way a generation lives, the ways in which information is generated through social networks and ways in which that information is analyzed and used are now rapidly evolving.

Understanding emerging technical avenues in social media and building on them is the goal of this year's NFIC conference.  To achieve this NFIC has restructured this annual conference in a number of ways. Instead of a series of single speakers we will offer expert presentations as part of a sequence of panels. The objective of this format is to create an interactive discussion between the panelists and the audience. The panel format allows better interchange and exposure of the conference attendees to the panel experts, who are leaders in the development of the technical side of social networking.
