The Social Future of the Book: Creating conversation and community in and around the book

A session at Digital Book World 2012

  • Sol Rosenberg
  • Travis Alber

Tuesday 24th January, 2012

2:30pm to 3:20pm (EST)

In these days when you’re just not in the game if you don’t have a Facebook page and a Twitter feed, every publisher and author is supposed to be a marketer creating their own followings. New opportunities to connect with readers and add social elements to books crop up every day. What works best? And how do publishers best navigate the opportunities to both build their own marketing capability and support authors in building theirs? A panel of publishers and social marketing tool-creators will share their experiences to help us all to a better understanding of what efforts are worth the trouble, what tools and services exist to make it simpler, and what’s a waste of time.
