Sponsorship Updates

Monday, August 20, 2007

We have a few bits of exciting news to share with you about next year's conference, including invited speakers and tutorials. Right now, I want to let you know about some initial sponsors for the event: Microsoft and Google have both made generous contributions. Both of these companies are deeply involved with social media in a number of ways - from Google's blog search, blogging platform and Google Earth communities, to Microsoft's Spaces product and IM system. We are very excited to have them both support us and provide the kind of backing that will ensure a successful and exciting event.

We will be announcing a number of additional sponsors in the near future. If you would like to be associated with the premier social media research event, please contact us at
