The battle of the social medias is hotting up. With acquisitions and new players disrupting the market on almost a daily basis, its no wonder there are so many questions about where to spend your social media time and investment. Our panel share with you their thoughts on what's new and useful, where social is heading and what to focus on to make the most of your investment in social media.  We will also discuss what is in, what is out, and what is most likely to be the focus for the future of social media.  

There is something for everyone in this panel discussion. Our panelists are from one of the largest social agencies, an entrepreneurial influencer who uses social to help his clients gain visibility and a self made brand that embraces the changes to maximise their engagement and returns.
