SOCIAL MEDIA MASTER: PATRICK O'KEEFE
our community – the people who love and support what you do.
Patrick will help you learn how to most effectively engage with your community and will talk about community management and engagement in spaces you control and spaces you don’t, from Facebook and Twitter to forums and blogs. This is the art of community building on the web, both the good and the bad, steeped in real world experience.
Patrick is the founder of the iFroggy Network, a network of websites covering various interests. He has been managing online communities since 2000 and is the author of “Managing Online Forums,” a practical guide to managing online social spaces.
