LATISM - Latinos in Social Media
As the Latino population continues to multiply in the United States and Social Networking & Web 2.0 at an all time high, "Latinos in Social Media" are more relevant than ever before.
The LATISM Heritage Tour is a first of it's kind conference focusing on this trend.
The following is an excerpt from; http://latism.org
Bienvenidos to Latinos In Social Media Heritage Tour! (#LatISM)
The first national tour taking place in three states - NY, TX, FL - during the Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15th - October 15th).
This two-day event will provide a networking opportunity and conference presentation, bringing together the leading minds and innovators in social media and technology.
All are welcome to learn, understand and support Latinos in the current dynamic social media enviornment.
With 21 million projected Latino internet users by 2010, Latinos are adopting social media as their primary source of communication, news and entertainment faster than any other group. Their buying power is projected to reach $1.3 Trillion by 2013.
It is paramount to learn what cultural factors are driving this shift, and understand how to reach Latinos where they are primarily active in emerging technologies.
