It’s time! Social Media Week is arriving!

Kicking off in 5 days in 10 cities around the world with over 500 events taking place, Social Media Week February is bringing a very unique experience to us. With debuts from Copenhagen and Lagos, a return to Milan, and 7 veteran SMW cities, we can’t wait to see everything unfold.

There’s a lot to keep track of and we don’t want you to miss a beat- we’re breaking down how you can keep up with it all, even if you’re not able to join us in person. We also want to make it easy to share what’s happening with everyone else. So, we present you with our comprehensive guide to all things SMW.

Follow SMW13

Social Media Week Official Mobile App

If you want to keep up, you need the right tools — and our mobile app is the best place to start! Powered by Nokia, our improved app lets you stream events live, sync your Favorites and keep up with the schedule. All from the convenience of your phone. Download it now.

Social Media Week Live

You can’t be everywhere at once; and we know it. So, whether you’re in one of our September host cities, just not able to attend the session you wanted, or a supporter in another country, SMW Live keeps you involved in the conversation. SMW Live features a comprehensive listing of streamed events by category and city. Keeping with our focus on making it easier for you to share what’s happening, you can post your photos and comments in a new feed format on each streaming event.

SMW RealTime

Sometimes going simple is the best route. We listened to feedback and our new SMW RealTime, powered by Nokia, is a much more focused channel for keeping up with what you care about. Now, all events have SMW RealTime embedded into the event description, allowing you to follow the speakers AND the conversation as it happens. See what we mean?

Twitter & Hashtags

While we have some pretty amazing tools that we’ve collaborated with Nokia to bring you a great experience. But that doesn’t mean you don’t need to know the basics. We’ll be using these global hashtags and handles.

We want to see SMW13 through your eyes. Share your Instagram (or whatever mobile photo app is your preference!) photos with us and the world. We’ll be keeping track of them by looking for #SMW13, and sharing our favorites. You can also see the latest shared on our special SMW13 in Images Page.
