A recently published Nielson poll finds that Hispanic adults "are 25 percent more likely [than the general online population] to follow a brand."

Statistics aside, how are Latinos incorporating innovative technologies into their daily lives, and what digital strategies are marketers using to reach this increasingly powerful consumer-base?

On Monday, September 16 at 2:00 PM (ET), NPR Tell Me More host Michel Martin invites you to a Google+ On-Air Hangout she is guiding with a handful of influential Latino voices in digital media. They will explore how Latinos are increasingly turning to social media to discover information and amplify their voices to empower Hispanic-American communities.
