Facebook Joins Dad 2.017 As Official Sponsor!

Doug French2017 Dad 2.0 Summit, Announcements, Sponsor

Hang on to your smartphones, because we’ve got some great news about the thing you very likely use your phone for more than actual phoning. That’s right: Facebook, the preeminent social platform that connects the world, has signed on as an Official Sponsor of the 2017 Dad 2.0 Summit!

We all use Facebook to stay in touch and connect with each other, during those dark days in between Summits, so that when the next Welcome Party rolls around, people who haven’t seen each other for a year can hit the ground running with hugs and conversation. So we’re especially excited to see the features Facebook we can get real with in their tricked-out Sponsor suite:

  • The immediacy and intimacy of Facebook Live videos;
  • Forming and finding communities among the tens of millions of Facebook Groups (and the power of the new Groups Discover tool);
  • The massive inventory of Facebook Marketplace, where millions of verified persons, with real, transparent identities, transact business; and
  • The convenience of friends’ recommendations of goods, services, and events within Facebook Local.

And the best part? The people who operate Facebook are also the people who use Facebook, who want to stay connected with friends and family, to discover what’s going on in the world, and to share and express what matters to them. Just like we do. We’re excited to welcome them into the Dad 2.0 family and to learn how to connect with the world more personally and conveniently than ever.
