Announcing Synthesio as latest sponsor of news:rewired – digital stories

We’re pleased to announce social media monitoring specialists Synthesio as the latest sponsors of digital journalism conference news:rewired – digital stories.

The one-day conference takes place on Thursday 6 December – just three weeks today – at MSN UK’s offices in Victoria, London.

The day will be geared towards equipping delegates with knowledge of the latest techniques and tools for producing top-notch digital journalism. See the agenda here.

Synthesio is a global, multi-lingual social media monitoring company that offers a powerful mix of tech and human monitoring services, to help businesses collect, make sense of and participate in the conversations happening about them online.

Synthesio’s monitoring platform covers more than 100 countries and up to 50 languages. It spans the full range of social media platforms; from blogs and forums through to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and online mainstream media channels.

The tool gives users a complete picture of what is being said about key stories and topics, and unearth valuable insights into real-time issues and events, as they play out online.

Synthesio’s UK managing director Catriona Oldershaw will join the ‘collecting social conversations’ panel at news:rewired – digital stories, which is looking at the ways journalists can find conversations taking place on various social media platforms, discover news leads and tune in to audience reactions.

She will join the three other speakers already lined-up for the session: Ian Barber, senior developer advocate, Google+, Katie Rogers, social news editor, Guardian US and Dave Wyllie, editor,

There are still a handful of tickets available for news:rewired, but be quick as the event usually sells out. Tickets for the one-day conference can be purchased at this link for just £130 (+VAT). Lunch and refreshments will also be provided, as well as networking drinks afterwards.
