SOCIAL MEDIA WEEKEND: Feb 15-17, at Columbia Journalism School – three days of panels, workshops, social-media doctors, social media headshots and more. #smwknd – ALL LEVELS WELCOME.

* If you can't make Friday evening through Sunday afternoon, we sell
   passes for each day – all for the best conference value in the country.
   Weekend pass $210; Friday night: $60; Saturday all events: $110; Sunday
   all events: $90

* Lots of the latest thinking and big-picture thoughts, along with tons of

* We have a fab lineup with socmedia experts from FB, Twitter, Mashable,
   Quartz, ProPublica, Storyful, World Bank, RebelMouse, NYT, WSJ, NBC,
   NowThisNews, SoundCloud, MuckRack and many others. And we've just added
   to the program one of the Deadspin's co-writers of the biggest social
   media story of the year, the Manti Teo saga (he'll be hanging out,
   sharing his tips all weekend).

* No matter what your level of experience, you can benefit from a checkup
   with our Social Media Doctors – top folks who will give you one-on-one
   feedback, tips and coaching.

* Late last night, I got a tweet about my Twitter profile photo that said
   "Love your Twitter photo. Classy."  That's because it was a photo taken
   during last year's Social Media Headshots – professional portrait
   photographers donating their time and providing great pix for your
   social media use. Three fantastic photographers are back this year:
   Keith Barraclough (@kwbarraclough), Tony Gale (@tonygale) & Deidre Schoo
   (@deidreschoo). Just the headshots are worth much more than the cost of

* Fantastic networking opportunity with attendees from across the nation
   and around the world.
