Blog World Expo Panel Schedule Change, Plus a Second Panel: “How to Deal with Trolls, Spammers and Sock Puppets”

August 11, 2008

The panel that I will be on at Blog World Expo, “Avoiding Disaster: How Not to Use Social Media,” has been moved from September 20 from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM to September 21 from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM.

Also, I’m happy to say that I’ll be on a second panel at the conference, earlier that day. From 12:15 PM to 1:15 PM, I will be on a panel called “How to Deal with Trolls, Spammers and Sock Puppets,” with Blog World Expo founder Rick Calvert and John Chow of John Chow dot Com, The Tech Zone and TTZ Media. The panel description:

Is your community out of control? Do you have cyber stalkers insulting you every time you post?

This session will help you deal with these cyber bullies.

So, I’m really looking forward to all of that and hoping to meet some of you out there!
