Update, 8 March: report from #DR2 At SMWCPH @fiwa presented the results from his research on the science of virality, looking at what makes a story popular on social media (see also article in Journalisten). The results on Facebook, where the overwhelming majority of Danish #socme action takes place, were dominated by tabloid stories – [...]
Still too many things on the go – I need to try to rein in my curiosity! Feeding my MOOC habit All was going swimmingly with IVMOOC until we hit a bout of food poisoning and Social Media Week CPH. Passed the mid term with 78%, upgraded for mystic reasons to 83%, and formed myself [...]
Update, 7 March: received an email bigging up the numbers (107 events at 38 venues, 164 speakers, more than 3K unique registers(?) doing more than 8K signups, more than 4.4K likes on Facebook and more than 1.2K followers on Twitter). Plus there’s the Social Media Week 2013 infographic. Big worries re legacy here. I tend to let [...]
After #smwcph I pitched an article to the Copenhagen Post – published here on 26 February. They made a few changes to minimise snark and tabloidise it a bit – interesting to be edited rather than to edit. My original copy is below. I’m very shy about pimping my stuff, but thanks to the CPH Post [...]
The grandly titled Elevating events through social media, with destination growth as a kick back was Social Media Week Copenhagen‘s event on events, hosted by the Øresund Event Center (see event page). No wifi in the room @crowneplazacph, so limited tweetage on #smwetc or #oresundec/@oresundec. Plus, despite being a hotel at the cutting edge of green, [...]
Here’s an update on Social Media Week Copenhagen, taking place from 18-22 February. Things have moved on from my earlier post - there’s a bit of buzz about from the ‘agency’ perspective (K Forum | content marketing) plus a load of new events, some picked up on via Facebook or Twitter, but mainly by painstakingly going through the [...]
I’ve a post in draft on whether social media will run its course and why I don’t participate much. Meanwhile Steven Poole has written about the invasion of the cyber-hustlers, a polemic so perfect I could weep. Favourite quotes: for most of us, disruption is annoying On Coursera: for a cybertheorist, a brilliant plan to [...]
Record of tweets from the SpotOn 12 conference session on Using Social Media at Conferences and Other Events: Backchannel, Amplification, Remote Participation and Legacy. Feel free to contact me if you’d like your tweets removed.
Still plugging away with my #sna and #dataviz MOOCs, resulting in a total of seven posts during the month. My MOOC experience shall be wrapped up in December. One short post only here, on community management and start-ups. In terms of event watching, I had a look at SpotOn London and J Boye 2012 in [...]
Back hame tae Alba for the first half of September, but still managed to squeeze in reviews of a couple of events in my Law Teacher 2.0 series. #slsbristol led to some musing on the role of the backchannel and how people actually use it – how many #slsbristol tweeters actually monitor the hashtag, I wonder, in particular after the event?
