    Not so long ago, research companies were talking about the “Digital Divide” between General Market and Latino consumers. Recent research has shown how this phenomenon is changing: Hispanics are moving from Tech Laggards to Tech Leaders. Hispanics are adopting new technologies –including Social Media and Mobile — at a faster speed than other segments.

    With a smartphone penetration of over 45%, Latinos are leading the mobile web trend (Google predicts that by 2013 most of web access will come from mobile devices).  The same is at play with social media: Latinos are spending more time, growing at a faster pace and playing a more active role by creating content and using social media tools as a way of influencing their peers. Hear three experts discuss the new face of Latinos online and how companies can benefit from this new reality.

    In this session you will learn:

    • Why the old Digital Divide is almost fully a thing of the past for Latinos
    • The new digital reality of Latino consumers
    • Opportunities for marketers
    • How Latinos are leading the mobile web and social media revolution
    • Examples and case studies
    • Best practices in maximizing technology to target online Latinos
