Understanding and Engaging Your Users in a Social World

Ryan Evans, Director of Experience Design at Corey McPherson Nash and graduate of MIT's Media Lab

Social media not only projects who your organization is, but engages existing and new audiences in an ongoing dialog. Find out how social media integrates into existing, traditional user tasks and how user personas can help you identify the effect the social world has on your users and how they interact with you.  See Ryan's bio below.
