This week the Latinos in Social Media Annual Conference will convene in Houston where Latino influentials across the internet will convene to network, learn new skills, and share tips about online engagement with the Latino community. This year there will be four tracks focused on business, technology, health and education.
I will be participating in the Technology track, discussing how social media is reshaping elections and influencing the Latino community in a panel on Friday afternoon. The panel’s formal title is: “Social Media-powered Politics: How Social Media is redefining the political game as we know it.” We will be tweeting tips, facts, and information in this panel and in others, so if you are on twitter, please follow the #latism12 hashtag.
Another reason to check out this year’s Latism conference is the involvement of the Adelante Movement, which will feature Sandra Cisneros and Nely Galan. This program aims to empower Latina entrepreneurs.
