Blog   /   Social

The internet has changed drastically in the 22 years since the launch of the first ever web page. It has grown into a communication tool, information resource, and a source of entertainment for over three billion users, and the print and publishing industry has had to adapt and evolve with it.

Today’s challenges revolve around adapting to the mobile and social web, including security concerns, optimizing content for social, and maintaining a consistent voice—while also meeting audience demand for high-quality content.

The good news is that print and publishing organizations are expert content creators—putting them in a great position to not only face these challenges head-on, but also to benefit from the many opportunities offered by social.

We put together a panel of industry experts to discuss how print and publishing companies can take advantage of social media to expand their audiences without killing their budgets—and to provide practical tips on everything from optimizing content for mobile to utilizing your employees and partners to amplify social messages.
