Friday July 17 | The Business of Social Media

July 16, 2009 at 9:11 am | Posted in Coming Up | 5 Comments

We’ll take an inside look at social media companies Facebook and Twitter through the eyes of the Charlotte Observer’s Jeff Elder. He just returned from a fellowship at Stanford University where he spent time at the companies and met their CEOs. He’s working a new beat at the Observer on social networking. We’ll talk about the business structure of the companies and we’ll talk to a local “tweeter” about how businesses here in Charlotte are profiting from their presence online. See pictures of Jeff’s visit to the Facebook and Twitter headquarters below.
