As a business solution, social media has evolved, moving well beyond the marketing department. In the last year, 13 times as many jobs involve the use of social media in some way but growth in positions with the title “social media manager” slowed to 50%. Behind this decline is a sea change in the way that social media itself is used within organisations.

HootSuite’s Rylan Holey, Partners Manager in EMEA, will be exploring this symbolic “death of the social media manager” at Social Media World Forum Europe 2014.

Dates: March 31 – April 1, 2014

Venue:  The Brewery, 52 Chiswell Street, London EC1Y 4SD
