I’ve been asked to serve as Co-Chair of the upcoming Social Networking World Forum, a highly valuable event designed to help businesses navigate the Social Web.

I will share the state of Social Media for 2009 and look ahead to trends in 2010. Separately, I will also discuss Social Media’s blow to Public Relations and how this stinging slap in the face will actually service as an opportunity in the form of a communications wake up call.

Social Networking World Forum has gathered some of the most prominent and prolific voices in the industry including:

- Jeffy Taylor, CEO of Eons.com, CEO of Monster.com
- Angela Courtin, SVP Marketing Content and Entertainment, MySpace
- Richard Jalichandra, CEO of Technorati
- Michael Donnelly, Director-Worldwide Interactive Marketing, Coca-Cola
- Scott Monty, Head of Social Media, Ford Motor Company
- Jeremy Holley, VP Consumer & Interactive Marketing, Warner Brothers Records
- Chris Heuer, Chairman, Co-Founder, Social Media Club
- Lauren Coberly, Director of Worldwide Marketing, Kodak Direct
- John H. Bell, Managing Director, 360° Digital Influence – Ogilvy PR
