If you have been paying attention to the Social Media Week programming, you probably know that on February 14, 2012 Cisco has planned a day of events with some of the leading voices in social media. Cisco’s GETideas.org team is adding to this roster with a mid-day panel, “#SMLuvsSocialGood”.
This panel will focus on how organizations are using social media for their social good efforts. From raising awareness and funds to activation and coordination; social good has found its voice in social media. Panelists will offer a multi-faceted perspective and key-takeaways that will help your next social good effort. If you are interested in leveraging social media for greater social good, this is a panel you won’t want to miss!
Sitting on the panel will be:
Karla Ballard (One Economy, moderator)- Karla Ballard is the Chief of Strategic Development – Media and National Partnerships, managing partnership relationships on behalf of One Economy’s corporate partners like Comcast/NBC, Teach for America, City Year and others. She will bring a unique perspective to the typical corporate viewpoint.
Jason Falls (Social Media Explorer) -- Jason Falls is an author, speaker and CEO, the latter of Social Media Explorer, an education and information products company focused on digital and social media marketing. He will bring a practitioners perspective to the panel.
Mary Anne Petrillo (Cisco)- Mary Anne is a seasoned marketing professional and at the forefront of innovative online education marketing programs within the Cisco Corporate Social Responsibility.

If you are in the San Francisco/San Jose area, plan to attend the live event – if not, watch it on the Cisco UStream channel. The panels will be watching the #SMWCisco hash tag (as opposed to the general #SMWSF hashtag) so the U-stream audience can interact with the panel along with the live audience.
