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, BlackEnterprise.com is highlighting power women in Africa who have made a sizeable social  impact.

New media has changed the way businesses function, increasing the amount of power consumers hold. This shift is evident in the way consumers use, socialize and interact with brands on the Web. Let’s face it: We are now, all—like it or not—immersed in a socially driven society, where the need to share every move, want, or purchase is apparent via our Google+ circles, Foursquare and Facebook check-ins, and instantaneous Twitter updates. 

Ann Mack, Director of Trendspotting at JWT in New York, set out Monday to inform brands how they can take advantage of social media at the opening of Social Media Week, showcasing some top consumer trends and the various ways customers interact with them. See what four trends brands should pay close attention to this year--and beyond. --Noni Cavaliere
