Collaboration – oftentimes, it’s what makes social media go ‘round. As we share our photos, our Stories, daily thoughts and more, it takes a team effort to elevate that content until it reaches the masses. Gaming the intelligent algorithms on social media takes a calculated amount of collaboration too, as we build communities of dedicated followers online.
Not only that, but behind the scenes of your favorite brands’ social media channel lies a network of collaborators. Social media managers and designers, content marketers and paid media specialists. Even in the instances where there’s one person wearing many hats, it takes a village – and the support of your fans and followers – to make an impact on social media.
We’re excited to sit down with three social media managers on June 24 to discuss collaboration and community. During 20/21 Vision: The Collaboration Summit, a day of inspiration and connection, we’re hosting a social media roundtable titled Building Community Through Collaboration.
