Sociamediaday_logo_30Jan2015_2_bigger
The first “UN Social Media Day” will take place at UN Headquarters in Conference Room 3 on Friday 30 January 2015. All are invited to join the conversation online by using the hashtag of the day: #SocialUN!

Anyone with a UN grounds pass is welcome to stop by for one session to to stay for a full day of panel discussions and briefings by high-profile speakers about the constantly changing social media landscape.

The event aims to provide participants with new knowledge and inspiration, as well as acting as a working guide to the exciting – and sometimes challenging – social media environment.

During three panel sessions, social media professionals, digital diplomacy practitioners, academics, and experts will share their experiences, discuss trends, showcase best-practices, and provide insights into their work.

The event will be opened by Maher Nasser, Acting Head of the Department of Public Information, followed by a keynote speech delivered by Adam Synder of Burson-Marsteller on the results of the latest “Twiplomacy” study.

The three panels will be:

  • “Tweeting from the Top: Ambassadors and Digital Diplomacy”
  • “Making the Most of Social Media Platforms,”
  • “Social Media Trends for 2015”

Three short talks will also take place showing how three different organisations have used the power of digital media to create online movements through strategic storytelling and community generated content.

A detailed programme with information on all panels and presentations can be found here.

To answer your questions about the use of social media, “Social Media Medics” will be available on-site to answer one-on-one questions. There will also be a chance to get a professional profile picture taken and meet staff members working on social media accounts at the UN throughout the day’s event.

While the event is primarily aimed at a UN audience, all panels and sessions will be webcast live via UN Webcast and on the UN YouTube channel.

This one-day event is jointly organised by the UN Department of Public Information’s Social Media Team, the Consulate General of Canada, the Permanent Mission of Canada to the United Nations, the New York Chapter of the Digital Diplomacy Coalition, the New Zealand Permanent Mission to the United Nations, the Permanent Mission of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the United Nations, and the Consulate General of Switzerland.

A short version of the programme can also be found here.
