Truffle Media Update for October 28, 2011, LinkedIn, Forage, and Social Sharing

There's a brief fall conference season which includes meetings in Chicago, North Carolina, Omaha and Kansas City. Various groups but some familiar faces at each. Such is the case in Chicago for the NIAA's Antibiotic Use In Animal Agriculture. Truffle Media will be on hand to bring you the presentations (if you couldn't attend) in early November. 

The prior conference, Center for Food Integrity 'Food Systems Summit' is the venue of our most recent post. Dr. Jason Clay, WWF Senior Vice-President, offered his thoughts on meeting the needs of a growing population.  A refreshing thought, to save nature and wildlife, people's needs must come first. Dr. Clay's comments were well received.

Finally, the Marketing Tech Blog shares several items that all marketers need to know about and figure out how to fit them into their plans: the sharing lifecycle and how LinkedIn as a platform is upping its game.
