Description

Blogs… social networks… RSS readers… syndication … the tools of social media are creating powerful new business opportunities, but to take advantage, technologists, professionals and investors need to understand this new, fast-emerging technology and the unique language it uses.

There are more than 3 million documented blog sites, up from 100,000 a year ago, and the number is increasing by over 10,000 new blogs a day. Social media – blog’s companion technology —is even bigger. Some say these two joined-at-the-hip technologies threaten to disrupt traditional publishing, even as they promise opportunities not yet fully realized.

Yet, despite this phenomenal growth, no one company has prospered from blogging or social media. BlogOn will show you why this day is imminent. The real question is: Who will be in position to ride this new wave?
