A discussion about how technologies that are often built in the west are being used around the world in extremely dangerous situations. Often there isn't an idea of how to protect individuals and their human rights when developing these tools, even when they're being used by activists and changemakers around the world. This panel will present concrete examples from Burma, Tibet, Liberia and Egypt.
Teens are a powerful force … they don’t just aimlessly watch videos and chat for hours online. They actively participate in meaningful, and at times altruistic, gameplay. Ranging from political activism and charitable campaigns to drug awareness programs and anti-bullying initiatives, cause marketing campaigns and non-profit organizations are increasingly tapping the power of social gaming to authentically connect with millions of teens.
Join a panel of top digital marketers as they describe the current opportunities for cause campaigns targeting teens in social games. They’ll also share examples and data from successful campaigns that educate teens about substance abuse prevention and anti-bullying.
