Privacy exists at the center of the next great debate as the information age continues to evolve. More and more information, especially information of a personal nature, is being shared in public forums (from Facebook and Twitter to shopping profiles to market research studies and more.) But as more information is shared, even though it’s most often done so voluntarily, concerns arise about how that information will be used, stored, protected, and potentially shared with others.
Ray Poynter discussed this in a recent post in advance of the NewMR Festival, and our friend Leonard Murphy has discussed this issue at length on the GreenBook Blog as well. Fortunately, they’re coming together, along with other industry luminaries, to host a public debate on the topic, and hopefully help to answer some of the key questions involved in handling issues of privacy in the era of social media.
Here’s how you can participate:
When: Monday, August 22 at 12:00 EST
Where: Hosted on the MRGA 365 Virtual Event Platform:http://www.marketplace365.com/registration/mrga365/
(This is a passport registration for all MRGA 365 events so it’s a bit longer than average webinar registrations. After you register you’ll receive an email reminder for the event.)
Panelists: A TBD Representative of the MRS, Adam Phillips, Peter Milla, Ray Poynter, Tom H.C. Anderson, & Michalis Michael. Moderated by Andrew Jeavons and hosted by Leonard Murphy of the GreenBook Blog.
Presented in cooperation with NewMR, GreenBook, MRGA, and NGMR.
This will be a one-hour informal debate, with the last 15 minutes reserved for audience participation via Twitter (hashtag #MRDP) and questions asked on the event platform. Space is limited to the first 500 registrants, so register now!
This is a critical topic for the market research industry to tackle. I’m looking forward to the debate with great anticipation, and I hope you’ll join us!
