Building Your Game Community through Social Media

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Hosted by IGDA Los Angeles

Art Institute Santa Monica 2900 31st St. Santa Monica CA 90405

Today, even the biggest video games are using social media to engage current and potential players. In an already interactive medium, do players demand more interactivity via social channels? This panel explores best practices in building a community around a game property, including which channels are best, be it twitter, Facebook, or forums. Do AAA game developers have it easy, or are indies better positioned to build their brands with an authentic voice? Join the Los Angeles Chapter of the International Game Developers Association (IGDA) for a discussion on how to implement the best social media strategy for your game.

Confirmed panelists:
Linda Carlson, Director, Global Community Relations, Sony Online Entertainment
Ashly Burch, “Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin’?”
Alex Kerr, Community Manager/Designer, Soap Creative
Brandon Winfrey, Associate Community Manager, Insomniac Games (RATCHET & CLANK)
Geoff Chandler, Manager, Central Social Media Team, Riot Games (LEAGUE OF LEGENDS)
Moderator: Cricket Lee, Founder,
