Are Anonymous Social Networks A Nightmare for Brands or Undiscovered Opportunity?

Do any of the apps Snapchat, Secret, Whisper or Banter ring a bell to you?

Have you used any of them? Because these apps and networks differentiate from the biggest social networks of today (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), the big question is: how can brands utilize them?

What can we take away from these examples and ideas discussed in the panel?

  • In these new social spaces, relevance is key.
