Whether you’ve made up your mind about the usefulness of
social media or not, the numbers are staggering. In January 2009, there
were 42 million Facebook users in the United States. By January 2010,
there were 103 million. And while the growth of Twitter users is
slowing, there are still 64 million tweets every day. But the real
cutting edge is Foursquare. We got the
whole story at the Financial & Insurance Conference Planners
Education Forum. And we’ve also got a
slideshow from the event, held in June in St. Louis.

of 50+ room nights at the Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles and you

all part of Marriott’s Meetings Matter promotion. Learn
