OPENING KEYNOTE: Fireside Chat with Facebook’s Fidji Simo

  • Thursday - 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM
  • Centennial Ballrooms
  • #ONA16fb

We’ll host a candid and insightful chat with Fidji Simo, Facebook’s Director of Product, and Samantha Barry, CNN’s Senior Director of Social News. Given Facebook’s position as the largest multimedia platform on the planet, combined with audiences’ voracious appetites for news on social platforms, it’s difficult to overstate the company’s impact on news publishers. Join us as we dive into video -- including Facebook Live and 360 -- Instant Articles and of course, News Feed. Samantha will help explore how Facebook impacts news outlets both large and small.
