Social media has played an enormous role in giving a voice to people and organisations who previously had no platform. Social influence and digital leadership is now coming from a much more diverse group. The new influencers use Twitter, blogs, YouTube and other social media platforms to reach thousands of people.
People are beginning to wake up to the potential for social media to deliver social good. Organisations and communities who previously dismissed social media as a fad are beginning to ask ‘what can social media do for us?’.
But where is social media now? Where might social media be in five years time? What might it offer to anyone wanting to meet the growing need for new answers in delivering social good and transforming services?
This is an exciting time to explore the impact of social media in a digitally connected world and think about how social media could transform your work and organisations in the near future.
As part of the conversation Paul Taylor is chairing a ‘Question Time’-style debate exploring ways to develop skills as an influencer in the social space. You are invited to submit questions for the debate either through the comments here or using the hashtag #socialconvo on Twitter. Whilst we cannot guarantee to answer all of the questions submitted it will certainly be a lively debate!
A limited number of tickets are still available to attend this unique event and you can book here.
Thanks to everyone who has submitted questions via Twitter!
