Social Media Week Goes ‘Beyond Facebook and Twitter’

Tapping into the excitement over digital platforms not named Facebook or Twitter, Fenton hosted the Social Media Week panel titled “Communicating with Customers Beyond Facebook and Twitter: How Brands Are Accessing Start-ups to Collaborate and Communicate.

On the panel: Stephanie Agresta, EVP of strategy and social media at Porter Novelli; Bonin Bough, director of digital and social media at PepsiCo; founder of Marc Ecko Clothing, Marc Ecko; and Garth Holsinger, business and global sales director of Klout.com, a site that measures and ranks online influencers.
