Paul Bomani and Hafiz Juma are Social Media Week Lagos 55FORWARD Ambassadors.

Paul Bomani and Hafiz Juma, General Managers for AIM Group’s Innovation and Digital Division, discuss how the internet, social media and mobile have impacted Tanzania–a land known as the home of one of man’s earliest fossils, Zinjanthropus. While Paul and Hafiz argue that social media, in its purest form, is not a new advent, they explore its evolution in the modern world with optimisms and cautions for the future.

Mazuba Kapambwe is a Social Media Week Lagos 55FORWARD Ambassador.

There’s a festival in an African country almost every weekend of the year. With travel being more accessible by young Africans, these festivals are using social media to compete in terms of attracting attendees. Mazuba will explain how social media is changing how festivals on the continent promote themselves and how festival goers experience them.

Connecting people and content to promote conversation on emerging trends. SMW Lagos returns to Nigeria for the second year February 2014!
Introduction
Social Media Week is a worldwide event exploring the social, cultural and economic impact of social media. Our mission is to help people and organizations connect through collaboration, learning and the sharing of ideas and information.

We believe passionately that the future of digital, social and economic growth inevitably belongs to Africa. This belief is what inspires our local theme for 2014: A Connected Africa Is The Future. Social Media Week Lagos brings together thought leaders, creatives, entrepreneurs and everyday citizens from Nigeria -and throughout the continent and the diaspora- to explore how people and organizations are connecting to share new ideas and information.

“By programming keynotes and panels that look at how Africans – Nigerians in particular – are incorporating social media in their unique social, political, and creative landscapes, Social Media Week Lagos will explore just how important being connected to the world is for 21st century Africans,”

 -Ngozi Odita, Executive Director of Social Media Week Lagos.
