There simply is no substitute for being at Social Tools Summit (well, accessing the live stream was the next best thing). You could search the #SocialTools16 hash tag and read through the thousands of tweets – I suggest that you do, if you didn’t attend or see the live stream. The tweets feature tons of great advice, links to resources, running commentary on the day’s activities – and of course lots of social tools talk.
If you are pressed for time, you could just read this post. I have attempted to capture the highlights, by curating top tweets under each session, and sharing other details.
Check out the Storify wrap, below. I also want to thank Neal Schaffer and Brian Mahony for inviting me back this year, and to their stellar team for organizing the event (you could call them the A team, as most of the names starts with A, including two Andreas; and let’s face, it they are an A team).
Also, I thank the great panel that assisted with my influencer marketing session: Lina Roque, CA Technologies (congrats for winning a Social Guru award!), Chandra Carson, Lindt & Sprungli, Eric Dahan, InstaBrand, Ryan Connors, Century Bank, Wayne Kurtzman, Pitney Bowes and Jannette Pazer, DragonSearch.
