BOULDER, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 03/28/12 -- Gnip, the largest provider of public social media data to the enterprise, announces Big Boulder, the world's first conference dedicated to social data. Taking place in Boulder, Colorado on June 21-22, this exclusive, invite-only conference features founders and executives from the top social media sites in the world including Ryan Sarver of Twitter, Sean Bruich of Facebook, Daniel Ha of Disqus, Dave Morin of Path and Joe Fernandez of Klout. The attendees at Big Boulder will be Gnip's customers, the leading organizations using social data to solve business challenges.
"We believe the thoughts, conversations and debates expressed in public social conversation have unlimited value and near limitless application," said Chris Moody, President and COO of Gnip. "Big Boulder will bring together the top publishers, industry leaders and consumers of publicly-available social data to discuss trends, best practices and how this data is changing industries of all kinds."
Social data is changing the way businesses, governments and other organizations operate. From helping companies develop better products to predicting the stock market to providing critical on-the-ground information during natural disasters, the uses of publicly-available social data are wide-ranging with new uses appearing constantly.
Sessions at Big Boulder will include fireside chats with top publishers and panels touching upon hot topics such as the use of social data in government and finance, geo-spatial applications of social data and social data analytics. The inaugural year of Big Boulder will pair these educational sessions with networking in Boulder, a city named one of the foodiest, healthiest, happiest and the best town for startups.
