Social Media Stole My Music Mojo Panel Video and Photos
Here is the video from our recent Social Media Week 2011 panel. This time, instead of having our MD, Raj Kotecha, chair the panel, we brought in Sumit Sharma, editor of TheHipHopChronicle, along with respected Metro journalist Rahul Verma, MTV Wrap Up’s Babatunde Adefuye and SoundCloud’s Dave Haynes. The event was hosted by 01Zero-One studios in Soho, London, an awesome HD studio loved by media types in the know.
If you attended, you may be in one of our amazing photos, courtesy of Ravi Chandarana of Chromatic Photography, so have a look on our Facebook gallery.
And here’s the bonus Q&A session at the end…
Below are the editorial parameters:
Today’s music businesses are responsible for having direct relationships with not just DJs and editors, but tweeters, bloggers, and even pirates. The question is, who is the most influential, and how do we cover all communication bases?
Here are the questions asked:
(00:08) Opening Comments and meet the panel
(07:06) Who are the biggest taste makers and what do they bring to the table?
(11:10) How can labels work with online outlets to provide interesting content?
(16:47) What can we do to keep engagement interesting for music consumers?
(23:05) How can we try to curb online bullying?
(32:35) Why do you think bloggers are getting shut down due to copyright?
(42:38) How do you avoid spamming taste makers and find innovative ways of connecting with taste makers?
