At the recent Wharton Global Alumni Forum, hosted by the presitgious Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, the subject of “disruption” was front and center and the fact that “…
I don’t know about you but when I was a kid being slapped with the label of “disruptive” wasn’t exactly one would put on their resume but apparently in social media’s case, it’s a good thing… a very good thing. image

“Whenever we use the word ‘disruptive’ in the business we’re in, that’s a positive thing,” said entrepreneur and Lotus 1-2-3 designer Mitch Kapor who was a speaker at the aforementioned forum. He was joined on the panel entitled “New Directions for Social Media” by Ethan Beard, Facebook’s director of platform partnerships; Wharton Digital Press executive editor Shannon Berning, Bryan Srabian, director of social media for the San Francisco Giants and Travis Katz, a former MySpace executive and founder and CEO of travel recommendations site Gogobot.
