#Throwback with us at the next #GIANTtalks…
Heading back before the days of MySpace, Friendster and that difficult decision of how to distribute ‘love’ on Bebo, we’re going to explore the evolution of social media. We’ve lived every day of it which makes it difficult to appreciate just how far it’s come. Come along to gain insights from local social media experts – from theory to practical workshops, this event really will cover it all.
Time to remember a time where your GameBoy was the device glued to your hand, not an iPhone. When you used a Rubix Cube to test your mind rather than coming up with amazing puns for trending topics on Twitter. Making mixtape cassettes rather than sharing your fav Spotify song on an Instagram story… how times have changed!
What kinda GIANT information can you expect?
This isn’t about just “doing social”, it’s about doing social properly. Our speakers will be looking at social media from a marketing perspective, obviously, providing you with advice and best practices on how to learn from our past and the mistakes people/business/Trump has made.
We’re all on social media, and, despite what most people would say, social media ‘taking over our lives’ hasn’t been all bad – go on, admit it! Let us talk you through the good stuff and show you how to do the good stuff.
More information on the talks will be released closer to the date itself. Sign up for the free event using the form at the bottom of the page and we’ll send you more information on something a bit better than a floppy disk.
