Publishing 2.0: Social Media's Transformation of Publishing
Tuesday, May 21, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM (PDT)
Santa Monica, CA
This month, SMCLA and TechZulu are partnering to celebrate "United We Share, a month long celebration of 7th anniversary of the founding of the International Social Media Club and it's amazing members. All month long we will unite in shining a spotlight on the international community, including livestreaming our May event - a deep dive into Publishing 2.0
The publishing industry has gone through massive disruptions in recent years from advent of online book sales, to the closing of bookstore and the growth of ebooks. We are in the early stages of a total transformation of the inner workings of publishing. Social media has transformed the way books are marketed and sold. Now social media is even transforming the way books are made, with crowdsourced teams and publishing platforms that are as easy to use as Wordpress is for blogging.
We are thrilled to introduce our amazing panelists who will discuss about how these changes affect publishers, bloggers and social media professionals.
