How Instagram Saved Poetry

"It’s impossible to predict, while the first Instagram poets are still at work, how radically the industry is being changed by social media and whether the transformations will be lasting. But the triumphs of poets like Rupi Kaur—the world tours, the book sales, the frenzy of fans—are undeniable."

Social Media Is Revolutionizing Warfare

Former National-Security Adviser Michael Flynn was one of the first to see how social media was revolutionizing warfare. Then social media helped fuel his rapid rise—and precipitous fall, write @peterwsinger and @etbrooking: https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2018/10/likewar-internet-new-intelligence-age-flynn/571903/?utm_source=twb

Former National-Security Adviser Michael Flynn was one of the first to exploit the new battlefield that would ultimately help bring him down.

If you plan to use your social media profile for anything other than posting cat photos or political venting, be aware that the social networks are clearly focusing on bots and much of their defensive activities are happening without human intervention.

The Future of War Will Be 'Liked'

It was, perhaps, the strangest demand in political history: “The middle photo is taken from Hungarian p**n. Stop using fake photos to ‘trick’ people into supporting your lost cause.” This Nov. 18, 2014, tweet from a now-defunct Twitter account run by the U.S.

In the social media age, what you share is deciding what happens on the battlefield.

The ‘always-on’ mentality is terrible for social media managers — here’s how to switch off without getting left behind

The always-on mentality dominates pretty much every industry right now, but this is especially true with social media. Consistent use of social media can be detrimental to our mental health and so taking a step back now and again is essential, even if it doesn’t seem like an option because there’s just too much to do.

Being a Social Media Manager feels like your job is your life. This profession has finally been recognized by most employers but switching off is key.

Our Story

It’s no secret that Fairfax County and the Metro DC region is thriving in the world of startups and technology, which makes this the perfect time to bring Social Media Week Independent to the DMV. Social Media Week Independent (SMWi) is a leading news platform that curates and shares the best ideas, innovations and insight into how social media and technology are changing business, society & culture worldwide. The SMW community consists of senior marketers, founders, entrepreneurs, influencers and digitally connected consumers who thrive in the hyper-connected world and push the boundaries of the status quo.

The Fairfax County Economic Development Authority partnered with Social Media Week on September 14 to talk about the technologies and platforms that most of us engage with each other on a daily basis.

The half-day event, hosted by Capital One and held at its headquarters, brought in around 300 people to talk about citizen engagement through social media, the digital marketing landscape, podcasting, and politics.

Curated topics, panels and brought in speakers on the following:
