Whether you’re stateside or abroad, social media has made our world a  lot smaller. Last week’s Social Media Week (SMW) events and  conversations, many of which took place on Twitter, Facebook and  Instagram, to name a few platforms, are proof that geographic borders  can’t contain the flow of ideas in the digital age. 

With the dust slowly settling on SMW Lagos, which made its debut in Africa last Monday, is highlighting power women in Africa who have made a sizeable social  impact. These women were selected for their influence and position in  their respective industry, relevance within their field or due to their  promising future.
