Social Media Marketing: Make it Legal

September 24 · General Assembly Santa Monica

One of the biggest areas of concern in our space in recent years is the way technology has changed privacy and the rapid changes around the field’s legalese. And lest we forget we need not only be concerned with our own and our clients’ rights, we also have to be attentive to the rights of others! For example, if you are at an event and you start snapping photos, can you just post those pics straight to the web? What are you allowed to say in a social media ad? Can you run any ol’ giveaway on Instagram? What about all the ins and outs of how influencers should post online?

Every marketing pro should be in-the-know on this! Join Social Media Club LA and two legal leaders in this evolving space for presentations on all the dos and do-nots of social media marketing with regard to the FCC’s regulations and latest laws. In addition to the presentations there will be an opportunity for discussion and to ask questions, covering everything from intellectual property to contests to privacy and beyond.
