Innovation Lab Examines ‘Social Media in the Age of Algorithms’

The next New York Daily News "Conversations" event is set for March 25.

Brad Gerick, director of social media for the New York Daily News, has four very powerful additional reasons to look forward to Wednesday, March 25. As part of his paper’s Innovation Lab ongoing “Conversations” series, he will that evening be moderating a discussion with Mashable CEO Pete Cashmore, Yahoo head of audience development Alex Leo, The Intercept’s digital engagement editor Rubina Madan Fillion and New York Times associate director of audience development Mat Yurow.

Per usual, the admission price at less than $20 is a steal. From the event and tickets purchase page:

For “Social Media in the Age of Algorithms,” we will be focusing on how publishers are handling the effect of algorithms on referral traffic, specifically social media. Our panelists will discuss and debate their thoughts on what lies ahead for them and for the industry as a whole.

The panel is scheduled for 6:30-7:30 p.m., with networking receptions preceding and following. See you there! Meanwhile, below is some recent video detailing another 14-month strand tied the Innovation Lab’s great work.
