SMS SEVILLA 3-4 JANUARY

EN JAN

The second Transnational Partner Meeting (TPM) of the Social Media Savvy (SMS) Partnership was held in Spain. On the 3rd and 4th of January 2019 the new year was kicked off in Sunny Seville. Main topic during the TPM were the country reports on Social Media !

About the Country Reports

Social Media Savvy has done some research. Facebook is still the most used social media platform used in the world. Keep in mind that with all data disseminated in the country reports that Instagram and WhatsApp are owned by Facebook as well (source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mergers_and_acquisitions_by_Facebook). The facts and figures in the three SMS countries are that in the Netherlands WhatsApp (11,5) and Facebook (10,8) are on number 1 and 2 with the most users (in millions). In the UK, Facebook (32) is the number 1, and Twitter (20) the number 2, closely followed by YouTube (19,1) and LinkedIn (19). It seems that WhatsApp is not included as a social native application in the UK research, although it’s clear WhatsApp is not that much in use in the UK in relation to the Netherlands and Spain. In Spain there are only 25,5 million users (which seems low for such a big country). Also in Spain Facebook (87%) is topping the charts, followed by WhatsApp (also 87%), then YouTube(69%) and Instagram (49%). Three of four most used Spanish social media is thus owned by Facebook. So, even though Facebook, as a platform is loosing ground as regards to users, as a company they are only getting more users!

SMS GLASGOW 8-9 OCTOBER

EN OCT

On 7th and 8th of October 2018 the Social Media Savvy Partnership held a meeting in Glasgow, United Kingdom. During these 2 days we talked a lot about Branding Yourself Professionally on Social Media ! e.g.: ‘In 40 milliseconds, we’re able to draw conclusions about people, based on Social Media Savvy.

About the Project

Social Media Savvy is a partnership consisting of 3 organisations from Spain (AEBL), Netherlands (Dutch Foundation of Innovation Welfare 2 Work) and United Kingdom (Werkcenter Scotland). In Glasgow, Scotland we discussed the Study analysis and Country Reports on being Social Media Savvy (a.k.a. ‘SMS’). An SMS template was produced to make it easier to present the collected and outlined facts and figures, from each country regarding social media use for the young jobseeker. Ultimately this will be presented on our dedicated Social Media Savvy Website/platform, specifically aimed at creating a social media savvy professional identity.

The next Social Media Savvy Meeting will be held in Seville , Spain in January 2019.
