Think you know everything about social media? Come laugh and learn as we dissect the worst social media campaigns of 2013. In the face of SMWNYC's numerous tales of genius and triumph, the SUXORZ panel is the week’s official Greek chorus.
What were the worst social media advertising blunders of the last year?
How have market standards improved or degraded since we started doing the SUXORZ panel eight years ago at SXSW?
What standards should we all aim to uphold in the coming year?
The event occurs in four popcorn and beer-powered rounds, with each panelist nominating a bad social media campaigns or blunder and the crowd commenting and voting on those nominations. Together we’ll shame the ad hacks and marketers who abuse people-powered media and, we hope, learn a few lessons about how to improve our own social media marketing.
