NEW YORK & SAN JOSE, Calif. -- February 5, 2013

In participation with Social Media Week 2013, Pfizer Inc. and LiveWorld will
join together to co-sponsor three keynote panels on February 20, 2013 at
Pfizer Corporate Headquarters in New York City. The theme for Social Media
Week is “Open & Connected: Principles for a Collaborative World.”

Pfizer and LiveWorld will host a variety of presentations and panels to
educate regulated and consumer-sensitive industries such as pharma, finance,
and consumer packaged goods on the benefits and best practices of social media
monitoring, moderation, efficient process flow, and healthcare education. The
panels will further explore and address social media crises, regulatory
constraints and brand-sensitive environments.

With case studies from Pfizer, Cleveland Clinic, Wilson Sonsini, Goodrich &
Rosati, and P&G, presenters will highlight and discuss the most valuable
lessons and applications for brand-regulated social channels. These panels
will bring together social media experts from both the legal and marketing
disciplines for a discussion with a focus on pragmatic approaches to move a
business forward.

“We are pleased to join LiveWorld in hosting several quality presentations at
Social Media Week to address critical topics for our industry,” said Andrew
Topen, Vice President, Pfizer Global Media Relations and Digital
Communications. “Exploring the potential of social applications is timely and
crucial to our industry. We are looking forward to great discussions.”

Many companies in regulated industries have been reluctant to engage in social
media. The presentations at Pfizer will explore how social media offers
pharmaceutical companies and other regulated business the opportunity to
engage effectively with their target audiences through social media channels.

“Consumers have been seeking social media based engagement and support on
healthcare subjects since the earliest days of online community,” said
LiveWorld Chairman & CEO, Peter Friedman. “We are excited to co-host this
series of events with Pfizer which advances the category by demonstrating the
benefits for health care brands of pro-active participation in social media.”

In addition, LiveWorld will host the opening reception for Social Media Week
during which Ekaterina Walter, Social Innovator at Intel, will be signing and
giving way 50 copies of her new book “Think Like Zuck.”
