Inaugural TMRW conference explores: who owns social media?

BattenhallConf

Yesterday saw the inaugural event TMRW take place at the IP Expo in Manchester. With a focus on the future of digital and technology, the event featured speakers such as Professor Brian Cox and experts in the worlds of robotics, hacking and social media.

Our founder, Drew, spoke on a panel discussing 'who owns social media' alongside Steve Wood from the Information Commissioner's Office, Dom McGregor of The Social Chain and Stu Jackson of UP Communications.

The one point that all the panellists agreed on was that regulators such as the ASA and ICO are doing a good job of protecting the public, whether that be from abuse, bad content or misleading advertising practices. But that also the social networks themselves could and should always do more to speed up the process of cleaning up social media.

If you missed the event, highlights are on Twitter and on TMRW's site.
