AirBnB one of the world’s most valuable hotel companies – but doesn’t own hotels. Uber is one of the world’s most valuable taxi services – but doesn’t own taxis. And Facebook is one of the world’s most valuable media companies – but doesn’t create content. Powerful forces are at work in the “sharing economy” and in this panel we will focus on the Media business, how it is evolving, and the implications for marketers. It is well known that marketers have seen significant declines in organic reach on Facebook and other social channels. What’s not as widely understood is that media companies have seen significant increases in the reach for their content. Our panelists will discuss how and why that is happening, and provide ideas for how you can adapt your social strategy to capitalize on these changes.
