wtf MEDIA CONFERENCE

27 – 29 April

WTF! Social Media has gone main stream. What does this mean? At WTF Media Conf we will explore social media, mobile media and cloud computing – the three big trends for 2010. According to Jesse Schell, “Facebook, a social networking site, is big, strange and terrifying or rather unexpected.” (BTW, Facebook had more hits than Google for the second week in March, 2010.)

Online or Mobile, Social Media is changing the way we live, work today and will continue to do so in the future. If you want to know more about what’s coming and how to use it, then you are in the right place. WTF Media Conf will focus on knowledge and application (case studies) and of course, life would not be complete without the crystal ball, a couple of predictions.

The conference, organised by CPUT (Cape Peninsula University of Technology), comprises two components: Boot Camp and WTF Media Conf. Boot Camp is a mixture of knowledge, skills development and practice for the novice or beginner.
