Social Media Week, or SMW, as I’ll refer to it for the duration of this brief post, beings Monday, Feb. 13th. Sort of like a conference taking place in select participating cities around the world, SMW is an internationally-celebrated, week-long dialogue about the global impact of social media. Participants will discuss the economic, cultural and political roles of social media and trends emerging as social media transforms our social landscape.
Now in its fourth year, SMW is taking place in 21 cities including New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, Vancouver, Sao Paulo, Rio De Janeiro, Bogotá, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Istanbul, London, Paris, Rome, Milan, Glasgow, Berlin, Moscow, Beirut and Hong Kong. Starting in 2012, SMW is adding Tokyo, Singapore, DC and Miami.
SMW boasts 60,000 participants each year, all attending by way of thousands of independently organized events. What are you doing to celebrate?
