will play a larger role than ever.

such as FourSquare and Gowalla will be covered by marketing, social media,
search and programming experts, with multiple tracks featuring sessions
including "Killer Twitter Apps, Services, and API Trends," "Experts on PR and Twitter," and
other unique offerings such as

social media insight to new heights.
"PubCon is going to be so well-documented on Twitter," Google head of Web
spam Matt Cutts said at our PubCon South event in Austin, Texas. His
prediction came true as discussion about PubCon using the #PubCon hash tag
became Twitter's most popular term for a period during that conference, and
conference-goers enjoyed tweeting questions to speakers and fellow audience
members during many sessions, a trend that is sure to continue to an even
greater extent during Las Vegas PubCon

and other firms.
