Special to The Freeman

March 17, 2014

MILWAUKEE – Co-founder of the Tinder mobile dating app, Jonathan Badeen, will be one of the speakers at the Digital Advertising + Marketing Summit at Marquette University on Wednesday.

Tinder is a dating app that has users load pictures of themselves. A swipe in one direction means the user is interested in someone, while a swipe in the opposite direction means someone’s not interested.

Along with Badeen, there will be leaders from organizations such as Rockwell Automation, Turner Broadcasting and Raidious. It includes different sessions, featuring topics such as “Separating Fact From Fiction in Today’s Media Landscape” and “User Experience – Understanding Customers Needs and Exceeding Their Expectations.” This is the second year the event is being held.

The summit is 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday at the Marquette University Alumni Memorial Union & Weasler Auditorium. The cost is $139 for working professionals.
