#nmclagos: Behold the future of Digital new media

New media, Social media,online media, digital media. They all have a common word media and have similar meanings. Right? That's what I thought too until I attended the  New media conference an Olori supergal initiative . The new media conference is a gathering of social media enthusiasts,vloggers,digital marketers,digital agencies, tech geeks and more.

In subsequent posts, I will be sharing ideas on how to use digital media to your best advantage. Some of the posts are influenced by knowledge I have gained from different speakers at different times and from personal experience of what has worked for me.
To any individual or business who wishes to remain relevant now and in the future , I recommend  participation in events related to your field. These events are the meeting points of professionals and industry experts,and its there you get to learn, experience, share ideas, network and discover new opportunities.
