Two Digiday staffers will be participating in Social Media Week in New York City this year.

  • Josh Sternberg, media reporter for Digiday will be speaking Thursday at noon, on the panel, “The Golden Age of Digital Storytelling,” along with Jon Steinberg, president & COO of BuzzFeed. The panel will focus on how storytelling impacts engagement among readers and followers.
  • Saya Weissman, assistant editor for Digiday will be moderating, “The Gif That Keeps on Giving,” where speakers will be taking a look at the .gif phenomenon in advertising.
  • Saya will also be speaking about the biggest social media mistakes of 2012 at “SUXORZ: the worst social media campaigns of 2012,” where a “drunken, popcorn throwing mob audience [will vote] on the worst campaign of that round.”
