Save the Date: Social Media Summit in London

socialmediasummitNext Friday, BBC Academy’s College of Journalism, the New York Times, and the Knight Foundation are holding the Social Media Summit 2014 in London. If you are already across the pond or just loaded enough to jet set, it’s possible that you’re still out of luck. Tickets were going quickly.

But you can still follow along using, of course, social media. I’d tune into Twitter around 2pm (UK time) to follow Vivian Schiller’s keynote speech. Earlier in the day, Andy Carvin of First Look Media joins a panel of international journalists to talk about covering world news and using social media to do it better. You can see a full list of speakers and the agenda here. Set the reminders. Next Friday. May 16. #SMSLDN. See you there.
