More than 30 of the world’s foremost writers and experts on mobile will be part of a conference roadshow that runs for three consecutive events in Hong Kong, London and New York.
Taking place from 7-11th October later this year, Mobilista Rockstars will feature keynote-level presentations from each of the 32 specially invited speakers in each two-day event in each city.

We’ve seen how social media has played an important role in creating cause awareness, inciting revolutions, and toppling Government regimes.
However, who could have ever imagined that these powerful tools would be used by US gangs across America? In cities such as New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, gang members often use Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media outlets to spread vitriolic ‘diss’ messages and encourage rival gangs to respond.
