EDU Social allows users to decide whether or not they would like to share their information with other SXSW EDU registrants via EDU Social and the SXSW EDU mobile app.
Note that your direct contact information will not be displayed in EDU Social. Any contact info provided is for SXSW EDU's internal use only.
There are two settings for privacy: Public and Private. You can change your privacy setting at any time by editing your profile on EDU Social, or by selecting My Profile>Edit>Edit Settings and updating your preferences in the SXSW EDU mobile app.
Public: Making your profile public is the best way to network with other SXSW EDU registrants before and during the event.
SXSW Social users who choose to make their profiles public will:
- Have their name, badge type, company, company url and title, city and state/country listed in the registrant directory for other SXSW EDU registrants to view
- Be able to search for and star other users
- Be able to chat with other SXSW EDU registrants in EDU Social and the SXSW EDU mobile app
- Be included in the SXSW EDU Recommends program, which connects people with similar interests. Through this program, the name and profile pics uploaded by users will be shared with other SXSW EDU Registrants with similar interests. Sharing occurs via email and the SXSW EDU mobile app and appears in the Favorited By list on the online schedule after favoriting an event
Private: Making your profile private will limit your ability to network with other SXSW EDU registrants through EDU Social and the SXSW EDU mobile app.
EDU Social users who choose to make their profiles private will not be listed in EDU Social and will not be able to search for and/or contact other SXSW registrants.
