The panel was moderated by well-known filmmaker Furqan T. Siddiqui.
Faysal Quraishi commented regarding his participation in this discussion: “I felt that this was a very good conference as it addressed how important a role social media, especially Facebook is playing in today’s market. For example, even the biggest companies in the world are moving away from websites and focusing on promoting themselves through Facebook. They should definitely have this get together again on a much larger scale and invite more youth to it as it is a very important platform through which to learn about the impact of social media in every aspect of today’s society.”
