Today I am attending Blog Carolinas a social media conference being held in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park (that’s halfway between Raleigh and Durham). I am particularly interesting on hearing Andy Beal’s session on Online Reputation Management. Andy recently launched Trackur, an online reputation monitoring service (which I am interested in using for Zenoss).
Here’s what I expect to get out of today’s conference (paraphrased from their website)
- How Social Media is impacting Marketing and Communications Strategies
- How Community can serve as a model to improving organizational productivity
- Network with experts in the fields of On Line Reputation, Search Engine Optimization, Web 2.0 Technology and On Line Community Building
Not sure what the program will be like but just the fact I get this kind of content five minutes from my house seems very cool to me.
