Univision Diamond Sponsor at LATISM 2012

By Lynn Ponder: I am thrilled to announce that I have been picked to be Univision social blogger at Latism 2012 Conference in Houston, Texas. This is an extraordinary opportunity for me to learn and share the knowledge about this amazing network, who’s dedication to engage and connect with their audience, has made them leaders in the social media space.

Univision has partnered with LATISM 2012 Conference as a Diamond Sponsor which makes them great contributors to LATISM pioneering social media non-profit organization. This partnership stands out because both organizations are focused on empowering Latinos through social media and investing resources in educating our Latino community through the power of connectivity of social networks. It is a perfect partnership in deed, and one that I am proud to be a part of as one of LATISM Top Latina Digital Influencers which gave me the opportunity to be sponsored by Univision at the conference.

The conference includes a diverse group of brilliant minds from Technology, Business and Health organizations. I am personally privileged to be the moderator for The New Latino Media: Digital Journalism con Sabor on Friday, October 26 at 11:30am.

And to keep the social engagement in real-time they will have a photo booth where everyone will be able to Facebook and Tweet social media themed photos from the conference.

Also want to thank the The Ford Motor Company who not only supports my efforts to educate and share the goodness of the world via webcitygirls social channels but Ford also supports LATISM at the state and national levels. Ford is committed to being the most engaged automaker in the Latino community and social media partners like LATISM are key to keeping connected with Hispanos.

Ford has a trusted history with Latinos and their families providing class-leading fuel economy, in-car connectivity to keep you connected while on the road, and innovative safety technology; demonstrating that Ford is the quality leader among automakers.

Gracias Ford y Univision for this great opportunity of collaboration in the social space at LATISM 2012 Conference.
