George Shababb – COO, TNS Media Research; Convention Co-Chair

If the Mass Media System Is Broken, Now What?
There’s a new audience measurement matrix surfacing that challenges how we reach and measure consumers, and who is influencing who. This is a 2-part leading edge session.

The Long Tail Proposition
Scott McDonald – SVP, Market Research, Condé Nast Publications
Challenging the Accidental “Influentials” Proposition
Duncan Watts – Professor of Sociology, Columbia University

Digital media is driving down the prototypical reliance on costly mass audience “hits” at high GRPs and CPMs and dialing up a new data-rich niched Long Tail formula for aggregating consumers and optimizing consumer engagement.

Wired Magazine’s Chris Andersen’s provocative new book, The Long Tale, forms the basis for this session. McDonald posits the concept, presents the evidence and debates the implications for traditional audience measurement.

What comes first: the alpha influential or the influential alpha group? Watts implodes the traditional wisdom about key “influentials” who propagate trends and advances a startling new theory about the power of social networks in creating “waves” of interest. Is the “opinion leader,” “tipping point” model wrong, especially in this new über-networked world of consumer connectivity? More than theory, Watts shows us ways to put this revolutionary new concept into practice and maximize the Long Tail phenomena. A panel of industry executives responds.

This panel will debate tools and strategies to accommodate our ever-changing world.

Does Multi-Platform Measure Up?
Cross media measurement is another buzz theme. The silos are open and advertisers and agencies are looking for new, more fluid ways to connect with consumers across all touchpoints. As we measure across media, are we diluting the power of particular media to deliver? Is another layer of measurement necessary to provide clarity and determine patterns of cross-platform usage? This panel will consider current solutions, the tradeoffs for buyers and sellers, and new ideas to address these measurement challenges.
