Ross will take the official #SMWNYC stage on Tuesday afternoon to explain how Snapchat is expanding into a full-blown entertainment and communication platform, why it’s so much more than social media, and how it is becoming deeply personal.
In this talk, Ross will speak on the importance of creating a two-way dialogue with conversational content and about future trends of different digital media that have outgrown their early “social” beginnings.
