Security, Privacy and Social Networking

Can we have it all?


The social media landscape has dramatically shifted with the addition of Google+, the fastest-growing social network, and the rapid expansion of Facebook and other social networks. This shift has also sprouted several plugins and tools for managing multiple social networks. This panel will discuss how both brands and individual users can best protect their security and privacy while using these services.
Attendees will gain an in-depth glance at the thought processes behind better social network security measures, as well as receive tips on understanding privacy and risk policies, password algorithm tricks, safer versus dangerous social networking activities, and other tools for protecting themselves and/or their brands online.

Social Media Club Silicon Valley


Social Media Club is intended for those who are involved in social media, or want to learn. And it’s open to everyone, though discussions and content will likely focus on business applications and endeavors related to social media. If you're new to social media, you'll find plenty of people who can help you get started.


Most of our members are interested in learning more about social media for business, case studies, and best practices. So throughout the year, our aim is to bring in speakers and hold interactive sessions and workshops that focus on these topics. One part networking and socializing, one part practical business ideas.
