In what areas and how could EU action on social media benefit employability, jobs and growth across Europe?
These questions will be addressed during the Digital Agenda Assembly on 21 and 22 June in Brussels, more specifically in the workshop Social Media Social Networking for Economic Recovery, Jobs and Growth. We will explore the use and great potential of social media for growth and jobs in Europe from three perspectives:
1 - businesses;
2 - social media platform providers;
3 - the public sector.
We are interested in discovering successful European cases from which lessons can be learned, be it from the business usage of social media or web-entrepreneurs' point of view.
