Africa’s first ever social media week took place in Lagos this February 2013. How did Nigeria get the right to host the event? What exactly happened during the social media week? What plan are the organizers putting in place to improve next year’s edition? How can those who were not able to attend access all that has been shared? How can we maximize social media, beyond just talking? Mr. Obi Asika, founder Storm 360 and one of the brains behind the Social Media Week in Lagos provides answers in this short interview.
