Where Canada’s social media leaders gather to learn how to apply the latest developments in this rapidly changing field
Last year will be forever remembered as the year that saw the social media enabled insurgent campaign for Donald Trump triumph over the establishment in the US presidential election.
And while pundits and politicians will pontificate endlessly about how this happened, the election demonstrated the power of social media, particularly Twitter, to determine the direction of debate, challenge traditional media, and motivate people to take action.
The pace of change isn’t slowing—what’s happening now and what comes next?
For a while all the talk was about Meerkat and Periscope. Now Facebook Live, Snap Chat and WhatsApp seem to dominate the conversation. By the time you read this, another social platform might be the belle of the ball.
Meanwhile some experts hail the end of the written word, pronouncing it dead at the hands of the imageOthers champion video. Yet less than 140 characters of text can cause an organization’s stock price to plummet. Perhaps the written word has life in it yet.
How are you to select the best channel among all the never-ending list of options? This event will help you make sense of the noise in order to make your social media strategy and communications more effective.
