Event Navigation

In partnership with Technology Ireland Innovation Forum, Trinity College and the ADAPT Centre, Dublin, Digital Catapult* invites you to join this half-day workshop in Dublin on Tuesday 17 April.

What is and how will the future social media look, how we are going to get there, and what has to be done to enable it? It’s well known that during the last one-two decades, social media applications have introduced significant changes to the way people and businesses communicate, and moreover, to the way entire online communities are established and organised through common interests.

Its capabilities are tremendous to obtain information about the acceptance of a new product or service, identification of needs, or even the determination of ways to influence particular social acts and events. Opportunities as much as challenges are abundant – be it in relation to data protection, consumer trust, new areas of social media brought on by the convergence of technologies, disruption to business and cooperation models, and citizen/user education.

As advanced digital technologies** – immersive, intelligent, data-driven and future networks – become more prominent in enhancing users’ social experiences, technology providers and creative content makers need to work together effectively in order to deliver relevant, accessible, cutting edge and user-focused innovations, products and services.
