Social media is changing the way people interact and organizations conduct business. The statistics are impressive. According to The Nielsen Company, a leading media research firm, time spent on social networks increased 277% in the United States last year, and Twitter usage grew more than 500%. Some organizations are leveraging social media successfully and many more are trying valiantly to understand it. Few people fully understand social media, and those who do not are likely to make mistakes.

This program will offer strategies for managing the legal risks relating to social media, cleaning up social media problems, limiting the harm they can cause and using social media within applicable legal guidelines.

Featured Venable Speakers:

Melissa Landau Steinman, Partner
"The Regulatory Regime for Social Media (Yes, There is One--or Rather Several)"
