Naked Dating: Finding Love in 140 Characters or Less

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Monday 14th March, 2011

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

In today's age of social media, real-time communication and multi-platform flirting, do the old rules of finding love apply? What are the major faux pas? How can you ensure that you portray the awesome catch that you really are?

This panel will explore finding love on Twitter, the intricacies of going from public communication to the first date, common sense tips for being the you that you want the other person, etc.

We will also have fun with stories of Twitter DM fails, how social media dating can fail and whether or not it's ever, ever appropriate to demand sex on a first date (hint: it's not!).
