    Con­fer­ence Theme and Topics

    Social media is being adopted and applied in almost every area of human activ­ity, be it for per­sonal appli­ca­tions, in edu­ca­tion, for com­mer­cial appli­ca­tions or in the pub­lic sec­tor. The rapid uptake of social media is related to many fac­tors includ­ing its ease of use and adapt­abil­ity to dif­fer­ent devices. How­ever, it also poses some chal­lenges and prob­lems that need to be addressed and dis­cussed. Tak­ing this into con­sid­er­a­tion ECSM 2017 seeks to estab­lish a home for researchers and prac­ti­tion­ers with a wide range of approaches to engag­ing with the impact, use and poten­tial of social media across disciplines.
