June 5 9:00 am - 9:30 am Morning Keynote: How To Navigate Facebook's Redesigned News Feed & Still Reach Fans In March, Facebook made a dramatic, mobile-influenced change to the news feed, altering the way more than 1 billion people see posts from pages, friends and influencers. Now users can see posts from all of the pages they've liked in real time, switch to an all friends feed, or view all posts in chronological order. This allows for a more continuous experience on mobile and desktop. But by putting this choice in users' hands, many companies and Facebook page administrators worry that organic reach will suffer. Our expert panel will discuss how the changes have affected pages and suggest what brands can do to reach their fans.

June 5 10:45 am - 11:15 am Building Cross-Platform Viral Entertainment into Your Facebook Campaigns Games are as successful as ever when it comes to consumers spending their entertainment dollars, with 67 percent of all U.S. households playing games. The fastest-growing media across smart devices is providing brands with ample opportunities to reach consumers, who spend 43 percent their time playing games – increasingly while connected via Facebook. According to Facebook, games use on the platform in August 2012 had grown 8.4 percent since the beginning of the year and has continued to increase. In January 2013, more than 235 million people were playing games on Facebook per month. Mark Charkin, King.com’s executive vice president of global ad sales and business development, will explore how the emergence of social andcross-platform games initiatives are changing the landscape for such brands as Unilever, Olay and Samsung as they look to reach rich, interactive and engaging audiences through ads on Facebook; and how such innovations as geolocation, mid-roll ads, incentive videos are finally making that possible. Attendees will hear about where that highly engaged demographic of gamers, women aged 25-55, play and how they regularly log on multiple sessions a day, for an average of 30 minutes per session, on the Internet, social networks and mobile devices – all while highlighting users’ state-of-mind and interactivity levels with Facebook ads. Lastly, Charkin will discuss how the various platforms (mobile, tablet, online, social) provide brands versatility and a robust scope in how their promotions interact with consumers.

June 5 11:15 am - 12:00 pm Mobile, Social & Local: Where Search, Influence, and Opportunity Meet As smartphone penetration surpasses 50 percent of the American population and tablet adoption climbs to 15 percent, consumers are searching for and uploading more information on smaller devices with the expectation of big results. Search is huge part of location-based marketing and it appears SoLoMo is now largely being fought around reviews. Legitimate reviews are boosting SEO and search results. It's why Google bought Zagat. It's why Facebook is pushing recommendations, displaying "Find out who's nearby" in your news ticker, and why Yelp still matters. Smartphones and tablets are often the first point of search and contact between consumers and today's business. But are businesses up to speed with their mobile presence? How has business capitalized or failed to reach consumers with location-based marketing tactics. And most importantly, what does this battle being mean for product developers, media companies and marketers trying to engage influencers and their audiences? This panel of industry leaders will explore the complexities of these issues.
