Social Media Strategist will be a media partner for the upcoming Social TV World Summit 2012: This is a premiere event dedicated to the social media revolution specifically focusing on the convergence with TV and TV enabled platforms. Social TV is an area that has started to cross over to the mainstream over the last year. With the upcoming OS updates and hardware partnerships soon to be announced by 'Google TV' could 2012 be 'the year' of Social TV? I am really looking forward to the event and meeting potential partners over the two days.

Social TV World Summit is on between the 22nd-23rd May 2012 at the Royal Garden Hotel, London. It will address the future of Social TV which arguably has become a game-changer in the way ordinary people watch TV. Ally Branley, Head of Social Media at Channel 4 commented on the Summit: “A fantastic programme, covering the right issues at the right time.” The Social TV World Summit will address key issues such as the land grab for the second screen, privacy and security, social TV and customer identification management, the development of transmedia story telling, development of social recommendation applications, gamification of programming, establishing the future of the user experience, LBS and TV, customer identification and customer relationship management. The full agenda can be found by downloading the brochure.
