“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.
Shih is godmother to her friend's cat, Remy, a domestic shorthaired cutie
