Web 2.0 has brought a new generation of online tools that enable users to network, share resources and participate in discussions on a global scale.
This growth in social media is indicative of its entry into mainstream culture and its integration into the daily lives of many. Even in its infancy,social media is having a profound effect on its audience, by offering them new and varied ways to communicate and create - changing their status from user to 'produsers'; breaking the traditional, more closed structure of mass media.
New Frontiers in Social Media is an event that will explore how social media will influence our lives in the future.
The event will bring together a mix of thought leaders, professionals and academics to answer the questions - How will these technologies evolve? How will they create new experiences for users? and how will they impact social changes?
Use8 events are informal and tend to create an open atmosphere conducive to discussion and networking. A good mix of creative businesses, professionals and students are expected to attend. The event will be held on the 12th of February 2009 at the Jurys Inn Hotel - Brighton UK.
