The Evolution of Social Networks

EIF Dinner Debate


Our world is changing and in many ways Social Media is the driving force behind this change.

Whether it is finding old friends, keeping up with family, planning events or sharing special moments, social media has revolutionized the way we communicate. The social web is also a driver for economic growth in Europe and around the world. Businesses are using social media to connect with their customers, to advertise more effectively and to build brand identity. European businesses that build apps for social media platforms employ thousands of people and are constantly growing.

This EIF Dinner Debate will explore how economic, social and technological developments in the social web are affecting Europe today.
