Has sharing peaked?

Wednesday 19 November 2014, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm @ Vodafone, 20 Viaduct Harbour Avenue, Auckland City

We have all been happily sharing online about our likes, location and daily routine with our friends and beyond. But are we getting more savvy about how and who we share things with? We can now set expiration dates on our posts and newer social networks Whisper and Secret allow us to post 'completely anonymously'. And then there's Facebook's new anon app “Rooms".

What do we make of all this? Are we “over” over-sharing and going back to the 90s when we hung out in chat rooms under fake fancy pseudonyms. And how will this affect marketers and media who rely on this info to share more meaningful stories?

Join our final #smcakl event of 2014 to find out.
