The publishing industry has gone through massive disruptions in recent years from advent of online book sales, to the closing of bookstore and the growth of ebooks. We are in the early stages of a total transformation of the inner workings of publishing. Social media has transformed the way books are marketed and sold. Now social media is even transforming the way books are made, with crowdsourced teams and publishing platforms that are as easy to use as WordPress is for blogging.
We are thrilled to introduce our amazing panelists who will discuss about how these changes affect publishers, bloggers and social media professionals.

Temperatures aren’t the only thing heating up in Sacramento.
More than 30 Social Media Club Sacramento (SMCSac) members gathered at the CSUS College of Continuing Education Tuesday night, April 23, to get pointers on how to “Turn Up the Heat with Social Media Marketing.”
Local social media pros gave attendees an exclusive glimpse into their own tried and true social strategies. Presenters were the California Lottery’s Digital Media Strategy Manager, Ryann Petit-Frere (@repetitfrere, @calottery), and Viralheat’s Senior Account Manager, John Boitnott (@jboitnott, @viralheat).
When Petit-Frere first joined the California Lottery team about a year ago, she said that social media was mostly “for fun” without much thought to a strategic plan.

We at Connecting for Good have successfully installed 70 Wi-Fi radios on almost 40 buildings at Juniper Gardens, a 390 unit low income housing project in Kansas City, Kansas. Located at 3rd and Quindaro, Juniper Gardens is a place where the average household income is half the average of the rest of the state and where the crime rate is four times the national average.
We are working to bring free broadband Wi-Fi to every family at the complex, nearly 1,000 people a majority of whom are children under 18 years old. Internet connectivity will absolutely transform this under resourced neighborhood.

Comment as-tu découvert le CM ?
En fondant par pure passion la communauté impulsion 2.0 en 2007 sur Facebook et Ning, je n'avais pas idée que cette discipline était en ébullition outre atlantique. En 2011, l'idée de lancer le social media club donne lieu à la naissance et la gestion d'une nouvelle communauté. Quand, courant cette même année, on m'a demandé de donner un cours de CM au campus de la CFCIM, j'ai dit pourquoi pas. Et c'est en transmettant que j'ai appris beaucoup de choses sur cette discipline. L’année 2013 a connu la pris en main de la communauté GBG auprès de Google et Dieu sait ce que l’avenir nous prépare !
Quelles sont les qualités d'un CM ?
