As Socially Aware readers know, social media is transforming the way companies interact with consumers—indeed, some pundits have referred to social media as the greatest development for marketers since the printing press. But, of course, the new business opportunities created by social media also create new legal risks for companies. Learn how to make the most of these new business opportunities while minimizing associated legal risks at Socially Aware’s and Practising Law Institute’s upcoming Social Media conference in San Francisco on Tuesday, February 9th.  The conference will be chaired by Socially Aware editor John Delaney, and will be webcasted for our readers who are located outside of the Bay Area.

This year’s program features speakers from Facebook, Pinterest and Snapchat, as well as counsel at other prominent companies and law firms immersed in the emerging social media-related trends and best practices. Further, representatives from leading social media regulators, including the Federal Trade Commission and the California State Attorney General’s Office, will share their insights on how companies leveraging social media can stay on the right side of the law.

If you’re looking for a conference tackling today’s most challenging social media-related legal issues, this is it!  For more information or to register, please visit PLI’s website here.
