Presents

Social News Smarts, Part 2

Community & User Expectations
on Social News Sites


Social News Aggregators offer individuals more than a chance to consume news, they also offer an opportunity to participate, weigh in on it, contribute to it and interact around it. But each site differs and the communities that form around social news sites are unique.

What sparks the growth of an online community around news and current affairs content?

How are online community and user expectations changing? How do site creators and editors maintain a balance between their original vision, and responsiveness to their online community? What can mainstream media learn from users of social news sites?


Join the Silicon Valley Social Media Club for an evening of lively and entertaining conversation about the evolution and growing influence of social news sites.
