As the use of social media as a means of communication on the securities markets is increasing, it continues to impose challenges for market participants and regulators who must abide by and enforce rules that were written with print media in mind. Simultaneously, social media is less costly, instantaneous and easily accessed, providing almost infinite possibilities for marketing, information sharing and investor relations. 
This session discusses how financial regulation and the regulation of securities offerings has evolved in the face of the growing use of social media by issuers, investors, broker-dealers and intermediaries, and what more can market participants and regulators do to efficiently but fairly harness the power of social media.
