Welcome to the
Emerging Trends in Social Media 2022
Riga, Latvia
Radisson Blu Latvija Conference & Spa Hotel
Elizabetes iela 55


During the years, we have seen adversaries weaponizing social media to achieve malicious aims while at the same time it has become the primary source for information for a significant part of society. The information space on social media presents both unlimited opportunities and threats.  Governments, agencies and private actors now face an issue of adapting to the double-faced nature of social media when delivering their messages.

During the recent years, the conference “Emerging Trends in Social Media” has served as a platform for discussion on how the threat aspect of social media has developed over time and reshaped the information environment as we known it.

This year’s conference will encourage a discussion on how governmental organizations and private actors can benefit from strategically applied communications on social media. Among other topics, the conference will also focus on how to translate academic and theoretical knowledge into a practical setting and how social media could be used for a better governance. Panel discussions will also review lessons learned from theatre and best practices from the private sector on how to use social media effectively and ethically.
