9:45 – 10:45 a.m. Stop Treating The Internet Like Another Universe
Eric Thomas | @Eric_S_Thomas

Why is it that when we get online we approach social media more like "media" and less like social? The internet is populated by people, it's time we start acting like it. Eric S Thomas will break down a few bad practices that create the disconnect between brand and consumer while online. More important, he'll cover how to overcome that gap.

10:50 – 11:50 a.m. Digital first: How news decisions are made and where PR fits
Stephanie Angel | @stephanieangel

There’s nothing traditional about traditional media. Reaching our audiences online is priority No. 1, which means if it won’t resonate online, it’s going to be a tough sell. Think broad, think interactive. Think social.
