Africa's First-Ever Social Media Week Held in Nigeria

March 25, 2013

Africa’s first ever social media week took place in Lagos this February 2013. How did Nigeria get the right to host the event? What exactly happened during the social media week? What plan are the organizers putting in place to improve next year’s edition? How can those who were not able to attend access all that has been shared? How can we maximize social media, beyond just talking?

Mr. Obi Asika, founder of Storm 360 and one of the brains behind the Social Media Week in Lagos provides answers in this short interview. You can find a full list of panels here.  And for more photos and information on life after Africa's Social Media Week, join Lago's Social Media Week Facebook community.
