Social Media Week (#SMW) Next Week

I thought you might be interested to know that Social Media Week (#SMW) takes place in 12 cities across the globe next week and includes various events that will be streaming online, tweeting and will (in some cases) include events that take place virtually over Skype and in other spaces. There is a huge and varied programme and I think they’ll be of interest to many on the MSc. Full information is on the Social Media Week website:

Glasgow is one of the cities hosting Social Media Week events (#SMWgla) and the other reason I am posting here is that I am helping to organise a joint EDINA/Edinburgh Beltane Beacon for Public Engagement event on Social Media and Academia (#socac) on 21st September including an appearance from this MSc’s very own Jen Ross!  It’s a free event open to all and I’ve love to see fellow MSc students (current, past or future) along asking our panel extra tricky questions!

Please do let anyone you think might be interested know about Social Media Week and this event (listed here: and do keep an eye on the hashtag on the day.
