Speaking about Social Media Week, organiser Damien Mulley said "In terms of usage, Ireland has been a trailblazer on social media, adopting Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and now Snapchat with great speed so it started to make sense to run a week-long celebration of social media and to run events that gave back to people by having people share their knowledge with others."
Events for Social Media Week:
Social Media Conference May 24th in Liberty Hall, Dublin
Measurement.ie - a digital and social media conference that is known for highly practical and at times very blunt talks is back for 2016 bringing a unique lineup of speakers together. Measurement.ie will take place on 24 May in Liberty Hall Theatre.
Measurement has ensured women who make up the majority of people that work in digital are represented in the speakers list and unique to most conferences, contributors will be paid. More details on measurement here:
