Social media awakening grips Accra, Ghana [Hi-Tech]

The Morning Call

Ghana embraced the global Social Media Week conference last week in the capital Accra where thousands of people engaged in activities including workshops and training sessions on how best to utilize social media.

Social media experts and professionals in the media, marketing and technology sectors engaged individuals and organisations on improving themselves and society online.

Among the issues discussed were how to make money off content, pursuing a digital career, and then enhancing your professional brand using LinkedIn.

The conference adds Accra to the list of over 22 cities to organise the Social Media Week.

The event gained the attention of the President, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo, who praised the organisers Echo House for bringing it to Ghana.

He made the remark via his Twitter page where he directed his government to use social media to bring development to the people.

The event witnessed over 20 speakers and was climaxed with a fashion show for Instagram and the Accra Is Connected concert showcasing the creative resource of the city.
