SPRINGFIELD, Ohio, August 28, 2018 – EF Hutton, Inc., has opened free, public registration for the “EF Hutton Talks Conference Series: Social Capital,” Saturday, October 20th at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. The conference will cover issues surrounding changes in social capital due to social media and the devaluation of individual users and the content they provide.
As massive social networking companies capitalize on user data and give nothing in return, the nature of “social capital” has changed dramatically. Social Capital is widely seen as the overall value of a community and the connections between the people and organizations within. As our communities continue to expand globally on the Internet, social media giants are cashing in on the value of user data and the connections and resources shared between them.
“This is the new social capital. The value of users’ time and creativity will result in $25 billion of ad revenue going to major companies like Facebook and Google this year,” said Chris Daniels, CEO of EF Hutton, Inc. “Users do not yet realize any of the monetary benefits generated from their online activity. This session of the EF Hutton Talks Conference Series will dig deeper into this topic.”
Because social change is at the core of this series, the location for this event is perfectly in line with the content, the beautiful campus of Antioch College, in Yellow Springs, Ohio, an area widely identified with progressive social change. The conference runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, October 20th at McGregor Hall on the Antioch campus.
The “EF Hutton Talks Conference Series” is designed to shed a national spotlight on specific issues in a wide range of socioeconomic topics affecting Americans in the digital age. The overall goal is to bring together thought leaders and business executives from industries like social networking, data security and personal finance to define and discuss problems and potential solutions to issues like user rights, privacy, the U.S. savings crisis, and more. Each conference will address topics through panel discussions, keynote speakers and breakout sessions.
“As an industry, we have a responsibility to the public to address these issues, not because we are compelled to do so by congressional subpoena, but because it’s the right thing to do,” said Gery Deer, EF Hutton Vice President of Communications and Public Relations. “This conference series is designed to help begin an industry-wide dialogue to explore ways that financial technology companies can help defend the rights of all internet users.”
Premier Sponsors for the event are EF Hutton, a worldwide leader in the fintech sector, and HUTN, Inc., with other considerations provided by Megga, Inc., and Vibrant Mobility. Sponsorships are still available by contacting the communications department at EF Hutton.
Registration is free and open to the public but seating is limited. To register and for full details including a complete schedule of the sessions in this exclusive conference, visit conference.efhutton.com.
