    One of the things I mentioned during my presentation was that I'd read/heard Facebook was working on different Admin Roles for Brand Pages and apparently the feature went live around a day ago - here's a great article summarizing them - http://marketingland.com/facebook-adds-new-roles-for-page-admins-ability-to-schedule-posts-13265.

    Kara from CanadaHelps was a terrific presenter and had a lot of interesting information about what types of content get the most interactions.

    Hey guys, I am very interested in this but cannot make it, could attendees start a discussion forum to share what they took out of the presentation, or is there already a website we could visit after Kara's presentation?
