Given the fact that it's the 10th anniversary of the conference we spent some time first looking back and thinking about the industry of social media in 2009... when Facebook already had hundreds of millions but not its current billions of users, the energy was optimistic, and people were also aiming to use it to create a positive impact on the world.
We fast forward and, as Daniels describes it, “we're obviously in a really interesting place -- at an inflection point where people's relationship to social media has shifted.” As he added, “now in 2019 there's never been a more important time for us to come together and convene to tackle some of the most pressing issues about the role of social media in our lives and the opportunity it presents us as marketers.”
