We’ve all been there. You trade your hard earned money to spend a day learning from experts only to find them inaccessible and unwilling to answer your specific questions. SoCon13 is not that event. We pride ourself on our unconference format that includes the audience with the belief that the one-to-many style presentation a thing of the past.
But we can’t make this interactive without your help. Of course, you’ll be able to ask questions live at the event, but we also want to give you the opportunity to perfect your questions in advance. We’ve created a VYou page just for that. If you’re not familiar with VYou, it is a question/answer platform, similar to Quora, based around video. Head over to our question to record your question for our keynote panel and audience.

In the “small town” of Atlanta, the attendee list of social networking events often includes familiar faces. SoCon13 allows the unique opportunity to network with individuals from around the Southeast, outside of the familiar social circle of Atlanta, and it provides learning schedules to meet the needs of a diverse audience. Yet, while the attendees may be diverse, they are united by their passion for social media and how it is impacting our daily lives.
