Social Media Technology Conference

As social media continue to influence all areas of our lives, it is important to examine and debate not only the use of various social media tools in different contexts, but how they change the manner in which individuals, academics, business owners and the government make use of this media. Founded in 2009, the Social Media Technology Conference & Workshop brings together scholars and professionals who are experts in the area of social media to share their perspectives on the shifting paradigm in the academia, governmental and non-governmental organizations orchestrated by digital and social media in this era of technological determinism.

This two-day intensive conference combines panel discussions, posters sessions, roundtables and hands-on workshops designed to enlighten scholars and practitioners about social media and provide them with the knowledge to create and effectively utilize social media in different contexts. The 7th Annual Social Media Technology Conference & Workshop is set for October 5-6, 2017 at Howard University. It is sponsored by The National Communication Association. The Call for Papers is currently available, and submissions are due by June 30, 2017 DEADLINE EXTENDED TO July 31, 2017. Feel free to share it via social media with this link: http://bit.ly/2jkplGh.

Working with past presenters and other researchers, the conference co-founders edited two social media books. The first was published in 2014 entitled Social Media: Pedagogy and Practice. It is available on Amazon and University Press of America. The second book was published in January 2017 through Lexington Books. It is titled Social Media: Culture and Identity. It is available on Amazon and Rowman & Littlefield.
