This week sees the start of Social Media Week 2012. The event is a worldwide series of events that are setting out to explore the social, cultural and economic impacts of social media.
Hundreds of people and organizations will come together both virtually, and in real life to connect through collaboration, learning and sharing ideas.
It’s no small secret that social media has had a profound effect on the way the world connects both socially and economically.
According to Social Media Week: “Over the next 10 years, three billion new people will connect to each other through the Internet and mobile technology - more than three times the number who are currently online.”
From the 24th to the 28th of September events will be taking place in Barcelona, Berlin, Bogota, Chicago, Glasgow, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Sao Paulo, Seoul, Shanghai, Torino and Vancouver.
