Cause Blogging and the New Media Activist

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Bloggers have a pulse on current events and social issues and they're quick to voice their opinions on them. But there are issues to consider before lending our influence to a cause. Bloggers and social media influencers can make a difference but it takes an entrepreneurial spirit, creativity, and the desire to take action, online and off.

This panel discusses

  • Finding the balance between gaining professionally and monetarily and donating time and resources
  • The effect of blog articles and social media - Do your tweets and retweets make a difference?
