2012 has ushered in a new era of visualised social media. Social platforms Tumblr, Pinterest and Instagram connect users with shared visual identities, illustrating that people are always seeking creative, hand-on ways to express themselves in the present.

A panel of social media professionals will be sharing case studies of brands using these platforms creatively and effectively. Presented by Hassan Mirza, freelance social media consultant, who has worked on campaigns for Skype, NSPCC, Museum of London, the Law Society and a range of small businesses.

Questions answered :
How can brands leverage the power of these platforms while generating business? What is the difference between content creation and curation? How can brands drive engagement and crowdsource content through competitions? How can visual social platforms enhance SEO? How do brands engage communities and drive qualified traffic?
