San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 16, 2013
Livefyre, the leading provider of real-time social software, today announced that Founder and CEO Jordan Kretchmer will be speaking at Media Post’s OMMA Social on a panel titled, “Social TV: How Advertisers Can Explore the World Beyond the Hashtag.”
According to Nielsen, 85% of mobile owners use their tablet or smartphone while watching TV at least once per month, with 41% using their tablets daily while watching TV. Consumers are talking with each other about their favorite reality shows, hit dramas and sporting events in real-time on social networks, websites and mobile apps, giving marketers a new opportunity to not only reach, but engage with viewers as they consume media. Television networks are looking to create “second-screen” apps and sites to engage with their audiences and develop communities around their content, and increasingly, other types of advertisers want in. How can advertisers tap into this shift in consumer behavior? This panel will explore how networks, agencies and technology providers are creating experiences that connect with consumers and generate powerful new advertising opportunities.
Held during Internet Week New York, OMMA Social brings together the top names in social and online advertising as they share the secrets of connecting with consumers using social media and marketing. A full conference agenda can be found online at: http://www.mediapost.com/ommasocial/agenda/.
