Social media is present in our everyday life, influencing the way we communicate, collaborate, learn, do business, build relationships and understand society.  As a result of the rapid adoption of social media there is a need to reflect on the practices and identify improvements and seek solutions to overcome barriers.

This Second European Conference on Social Media seeks to establish a platform for researchers and practitioners with a wide range of approaches to engage with the impact, use and potential of social media across disciplines. Drawing on best practice in social media we will call on interested parties, be they practitioners, scholars or doctoral students, to bring together and share examples, cases, theories and analysis of social media.
