Peep Insights: The New Reality Of Social Media
Peep Insights shares thoughts on Social Media Week, and the changing landscape of social media.
Since the first Social Media Week in 2009, the event has seen a staggering one-thousand plus percent visitor growth rates on Twitter and three billion iPhone application downloads. The increased ability of citizen journalism to impact traditional news sources sets the stage for a more complicated discourse on the future of social media and its meaning to our increasingly inter-connected global society.
Social Media Week 2010 opened in New York, with a press briefing highlighting the expansion of the conference to six international cities simultaneously, intended to illuminate the real-time disruptive experience that is social media. Hosted at The Paley Center for Media and streamed online, the briefing brought together a live video chat with the planners in each respective city including: Sao Paolo, San Francisco, Toronto and Berlin.
