Mobile social networking is becoming one of the key drivers for the growth of location-based services, as it provides a platform for developing applications such as friend finders, local search, and geo-tagging. It is allowing users to share real-life experiences through geo-tagged user-generated content, locate their friends are and then find places to meet up with them, and receive targeted advertising based on where they are. CommNexus has organized this panel discussion to explore trends, drivers, and the overall location-based social networking ecosystem. Registration begins at 7:30 am, or register online here.
