Conference announcement: viralcommunication.nl

Advertising and marketing are the true operating systems and economic
forces behind the seemingly free "Web 2.0". Nevertheless, the 'social
media' shifts from one-to-many, top-down mass communication models to
interpersonal exchange may impact their industries in the same way in
which the music industry had been hit by the mp3 revolution. Social media
advertising and viral marketing tap into virtually every issue of
contemporary media professions and communication culture. Yet it remains
to be seen - and discussed during this conference - whether growing
concerns over privacy and control are already reversing the trend.

The first day of the conference will focus on social media and marketing,
the second on viral media cultures from William S. Burroughs to 4chan.
