Social media is a growing phenomenon with new platforms cropping up all the time. Charities and nonprofit organisations need to get to grips with it in order to stay ahead of the game. Most leading charities have a social media strategy and staff dedicated to social media activity.
On Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd September, nearly 100 social media experts and researchers from 25 countries will be attending a conference organised by the University of Westminster’s Centre for Social Media Research (CSMR).
The conference will address a broad range of cultural, economic and political questions raised by social media.
Conference organiser Graham Meikle, Professor of Social Media at the University of Westminster, said: “We’re learning every day how much social media platforms know about us: this conference is an important opportunity to discuss how much we know about them. It’s exciting to see so many researchers from so many parts of the world come together to share insights, debate findings, and spark future collaborations.”
