 The focus will be on getting best use out of your time online, how to build more fans and followers and how to do all this in a smart, strategic, sustainable manner. Can't make it to SF? Watch for a similar session on Wednesday, May 23, live on the web from anywhere in the world, or in-person in NYC. Find out more at
