Social Media Week – Are You Getting Involved?

As you’ve noticed Social Media is taking over the world: Facebook now has more than 800 million active Facebook users, with 200 million added in 2011 alone (Social Media Examiner). If you didn’t know already next week is ‘Social Media Week‘ which is happening cross the world. In under 3 years it has expanded to 21 different cities across the world, including London, Chicago, Los Angeles, Milan, Paris, Hong Kong & Mexico City. The event that starts next week (13th Feb) has a series of events happening, for a full list click here.

The week will be looking at the progress and development of Social Media over the coming year and what to look out for. There’s no doubt that Pinterest will be one of the most talked about platforms. My personal Twitter stream has been full of tweets on Pinterest and all the latest stats – if you didn’t know already Pinterest has raced past the 10 million visitor’s mark. Find out more about Pinterest in our previous blog post.

Social Media Week have created a great video based in the year 2062 involving a bunch of elderly hipsters who are interviewed about the good old days of social media. We can guarantee you what’s cool in 2012, won’t be in 2062 so make sure you keep up with the times! Let us know what you’re doing to get involved with Social Media Week.

  1. Great video. No doubt I will be laying claim to much of the looking back as the people featured within it. And no doubt Pinterest was widely discussed. Interesting times as social media applications seek to target different aspects of the sales funnel.
