Pew Counts: What’s Behind and Ahead for Social Media

“The skill set of journalist’s has never been in more demand.” – Lee Rainie

In March of 2010 our Executive Director Leonard Witt had a chance to sit down with Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Internet & American Life Project, as part of our Future of Journalism series:

Hear Lee Rainie explain why he is an ‘optimist’ about the future of journalism during his “How Social Can It Get?” break-out session at SoCon11.

Rainie will look at social media trends spanning the past five years (since the start of the SoCon series), Pew’s latest findings, and explore how the changing news environment impacts both news producers and consumer, and even the role of news in our lives.


Join other speakers from the likes of CNN, Ford, Edelman, AT&T, and many more for a discussion about the past, present, and future of social media.

With less than two weeks until the kick-off of the two-day SoCon11 a select number of tickets are still available. Don’t miss your chance to attend one of the South’s longest-running and well-respected social media events. See who’s coming.

Hosted by the Center for Sustainable Journalism at Kennesaw State University, SoCon has developed into an eclectic gathering of professionals from across the media, marketing, and academic industries. Follow the CSJ on Facebook or Twitter at @CSJournalism to stay up-to-date as the conference draws near.
