This December I’m most excited about Le Web in Paris, the city of lights, love and Internet innovation. This year Le Web will focus on how Internet-driven devices are taking over the world; just look at how much time people spend surfing “le web” on their phones. I’m also thoroughly excited for the 2012 startup competition where sixteen emerging startups will duke it out on stage. To learn more about this great conference read my take on Le Web.

Today Socialmedia.biz welcomes Jessica Valenzuela, a top branding expert, as part of our team of consultants providing thought leadership in social media and social marketing.
