Social Media Week 13th-17th February

This week is social media week 13th – 17th February across the globe and you can see all the events that are happening across the world over here.

12 cities are taking part with over 1,000 events planned. Unfortunately for us, Dublin isn’t one of them but this post explains how you can take part virtually and the hashtag is #smw12 by the way.

The schedule of events is here and there’s a handy little app that can be downloaded too.

I think we’ll have to get Dublin onto that list of cities for next year! There are a few events happening this week. Tonight is the launch of the Social Media awards 2012 in Dublin, with the case studies from last year’s winners being released.

Our monthly KLCK bloggers meeting is happening tonight too, in Kavanagh’s pub in Portlaoise. Foodie blogger, writer, mum, ex-restauranteur and wife to chef Ron, Mona Wise will be talking about her success with her Wise Words blog and the upcoming launch of her book later in the year.

What is shaping up to look like a very good conference is the Measurement conference this Wednesday, organised by Damien Mulley. All about measuring online sales and much much more, I’d love to be going but have classes booked. Amanda of Spiderworking will be there and the hashtag is #donedealsocial if you would like to follow along on twitter.

With teenagers preferring social media to television (and some 40 somethings too), it is great to see so many events showcasing the best in social media practice and showing us how to do it all even better.

If you know of any other social media events happening this week in Ireland, do post them in the comments below or on our facebook page.
