One of the latest innovations coming out of Facebook is its search graph, which allows users to overlay their Facebook friends with other data, such as interests and location. This union of the social graph and the interest graph may further connect Facebook users with their friends, and help them find new ones, but what is its potential for marketers? Will it enhance targeting, increase ROI or lead to richer consumer insights. or simply be another, but not groundbreaking, tool in the marketer's toolbox on Facebook? This session will put Facebook Graph Search in perspective.

4. Who Got Game? Brits vs. Yanks Football Showdown

Presenters: Chris Heydt, Account Director, Social@Ogilvy
Mark Ward, Communications Director, Tottenham Hotspur

Football can be traced back to the English public schools in the 18th century. The British Empire enabled its spread worldwide and by the 19th century, Americans were playing their own distinct regional version. Today we see two distinct sports being played on opposite sides of the pond. As the game has evolved, so too has fandom with social media as the driver. Today, fans are a highly interactive part of the sport. But is the sports world giving fans the experience they want? Which side of the pond is winning in engaging its fans in social? In the ultimate showdown, we’ll answer that question in true sports fashion–a match to crown the ‘real’ football champion. Mark Ward, Head of Social Media for UK football club, Tottenham Hotspur, and Chris Heydt of Social@Ogilvy will debate which sport is really winning with social media.

The debate features video questions from prominent players, and will determine who is scoring in social when it comes to fan recognition–soccer or football?
