A Day Full of Social Media Content Education

We’ve been wrapping up the pieces to the exciting edSocialMedia Summit that we hosted on April 4 in San Francisco, where more than 110 attendees gathered together to listen to seven knock-out speakers share their experiential knowledge with our community.


The day was a great success, and we’ve shared many of the presentations in this blog post.
