A social revolution is taking place around the world. There are more than 4.5 billion social users globally having more than 150 million conversations everyday on Facebook (News - Alert), Twitter, LinkedIn and more.
But this revolution is no longer just a consumer movement; it’s creating a customer revolution for every business today.
The event is scheduled to take place Oct. 19 at the Javits Center in New York City, where Marc Benioff (News - Alert), chairman and chief executive officer at Salesforce.com, is set to deliver a keynote on how companies are transforming their businesses for the social revolution.
"Companies today are facing a new imperative – their customers, partners and employees are all social. But are their companies?" Marc Benioff mentioned in a statement.
