“We are seeing a seismic shift in communication
—spanning everything from personal relationships to business to consumer,” Shih
said. “For many, the relationship with their pets is a significant part of
their lives; in San Francisco, more people have dogs than have children (we
even allow dogs in our offices).  Social media is a wonderful way to find
more information and connect with others who have pets.”

A pioneer in the
technology industry, as an engineer, celebrated author, thought leader and
successful technology entrepreneur, Clara Shih is a celebrated visionary in the
ever-evolving world of social media. She is the Chief Executive Officer of
Hearsay Social, a rapidly growing Silicon Valley technology company whose
leading social marketing platform is used by large global brands including Farmers
Insurance and 24 Hour Fitness to manage their corporate and local Facebook,
Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+ Pages.
