SEATTLE -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Simply Measured today announced that CEO Adam Schoenfeld will join Matt Thomson, vice president of business development and platform at Klout, for a panel discussion at SXSW® Interactive on Social Media Was Fun. Has Measurement Killed It?
Our culture is becoming more and more obsessed with data each day. Why? It's fun. Many people argue that measurement has killed social media – it’s let the marketers take over. But the same data marketers use can be used by individuals to make better decisions, make more money, and even have more sex. And it doesn't require a data science degree to enjoy. The data is out there. It's accessible, and you can consume it, visualize it, and act on it, many times for free. It's big data for everyone.
This session will show you how social data can be turned into useful nuggets to improve your personal life, health and business. Use analytics to track your friends so you know what birthday present to buy; better understand behaviors and what the opposite sex responds to; make data-driven personal decisions about what to watch, what to buy, and be ahead of the trends.
This can’t-miss panel will answer all your burning data-related questions, including:
1. How to determine what data to pay attention to and what to ignore for your personal goals.
2. How to use social analytics to improve your dating life, and why people with higher Klout scores have more sex.
3. How social data can help you become a pop culture expert – predicting which TV shows will fail and which hot toy your niece will want for Christmas.
4. How using social media data can make you better at your job and help you make more money.
5. How to use this data in your everyday life.
