Mobile Social Media Best Practices, Networking, Strategies and Monetization to be Discussed at Mobile Social Media Unconference


Forum One Networks’ Mobile Social Media Unconference gathers leading mobile manufacturers, content creators, strategists, network providers and developers in an open discussion around the incredible opportunities in the mobile space.

San Francisco, CA – February 26, 2009 – Forum One Networks, a strategy and research group specializing in online communities and social media strategy, issued an invitation today to strategists, community hosts, device manufacturers, service providers, and content developers to discuss the emerging opportunities and challenges that mobile social networks and social media present, at their second annual Mobile Social Media Unconference. The Unconference takes place in Palo Alto, CA on Thursday, April 23, 2009.

According to Bill Johnston, Chief Community Officer of Forum One Networks, “We are at convergence in the mobile social media space. As mobile devices and networks become more sophisticated and robust, the former mobile user is quickly becoming a mobile creator. Major online destinations, including; Google, Facebook, MySpace and Yahoo are expanding their mobile experiences, improving their mobile user interfaces and offering new location-based mobile services. The number of mobile users continues to grow at a rapid pace and now is the time to take the conversations and ideas from last years’ unconference to the next level and create strategies and action plans to seize the new opportunities.” Key topics from the unconference last year, included discussions on:

• How to create an interactive social network on mobile?
• Mobile ads snapshot, trends, best practices, what-ifs
• The mobile address book as your “real life” social network
• Driving Traffic to Communities (off deck)
• Location-Based Services
• Extending web communities to mobile
• Mobile Marketing

Attendees from last year’s Mobile Social Media included senior practitioners from leading companies, including; Google, Cisco, Nokia, YouTube, Yahoo, Utterz, MobileLife, AOL, VMware, SAP, FunMobility and 3jam. The “open space” format of the event allows the attendees to build a custom agenda at the start of the day with pressing topics that attendees suggest. An attendee from last year’s event describes what he liked best about the unconference, “[The unconference] format [and] topics related to mobile web design [and the] ability to learn ideas from real examples shared by fellow attendees.”
