OFFICIAL BLOGHER '10 LIVEBLOG: ROYO - Latinas in Social Media

BlogHer Original Post

Welcome to the liveblog of the BlogHer '10 panel: Personal: ROYO - Latinas in Social Media. Click here for more info.

This panel starts Friday, August 6 at 1:15 pm and ends at 2:30 pm Eastern time.

Latinas are one of the fastest growing segments of bloggers, and it’s easy to understand why: They promote themselves in English, Spanish and Spanglish. They use social media to develop relationships and promote their brands with flavor. Their identities as Latinas influence everything they write, from politics, to parenting, to techonology, and more. Monica Vila, Jeannette Kaplun, Melanie Edwards, Silvia Martinez and Lex Esparza speak out about how they use social media to break the stereotypes, dismiss the multicultural divide and reveal the common denominators amongst Latinas.

Some livebloggers update as the panel is going on while others enter their notes all at the end. Keep refreshing this post for updates!
