The Human Side of Social Media Analytics with @JimSterne

The Human Side of Social Media Analytics and a New Metric for a Privacy Worried World

Jim Sterne, Founder, eMetrics Summit and Co-Founder and current Chairman, Digital Analytics Association Technology captures data, stores it, crunches it and reports the results. But the analysis of that data is a human endeavor.

Jim describes what it means to be a top notch analyst in a time when analytical prowess is a make-or-break career skill. This non-technical, non-mathematical session describes the role of the data detective rather than the data scientist and emphasizes the nature of enquiry, curiosity and communication. It's the short-course in how to become indispensable.

As a bonus, Jim offers up a brand new marketing metric to measure how good are you at getting customers to accept being watched, tracked, stalked, collected, scrutinized, accumulated, analyzed and popped into a segmented cubbyhole.

Third Tuesday is a great opportunity to hear about the latest developments in social media and to network with business and thought leaders. And we don't want students to miss out on this opportunity. So, if you are a student and would like to attend, don't let the admission fee stop you.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
