Preparing for the Future of Social Networks | An Update with Charlene Li

The hotly anticipated Facebook IPO marks a watershed moment for social media — as it’s no longer the new kid on the block, it’s time to stop dabbling and get serious. Yet most organizations look at social media as a check list — got a presence on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+ and LinkedIn? Check it off the list.

But much of the hard work still lies ahead. Charlene Li will share what the future of social media looks like from our perch here in 2012 — and what we need to do today to get ready. We’ll discuss the detailed process of how to create a robust social businessstrategy that is holistic and integrated, as well as the core capabilities your organization must have in 2012 to be competitive.
