Social Media Week Lagos kicks off 18 Feb

Social Media Week Lagos (SMW13) – a series of over 100 events focused on social media – gets underway in Lagos for the first time this week.

SMW13, powered by Nokia, runs from 18 – 22 February in major cities around the world, with host cities including Copenhagen, Doha, Hamburg, Miami, Milan, New York, Paris, Singapore, Tokyo, and Washington DC. In 2012 more than 66,000 people attended Social Media Week.

Nokia says this is the first time Social Media Week is hosted by an African country, stating: “With internet based technology and social media rapidly becoming part of the cultural landscape across the continent, Social Media Week Lagos looks forward to the invaluable opportunity to examine the unique economic, social, and cultural impact of social media for Africa.”
