If Facebook were a country, it would be the third largest in the world. Social media encourages us to share real-time information with the greatest number of connections, which can inspire real-world action. Governments now realize how this is shaping the future of nations and diplomacy.

 

From Facebook and Twitter to YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram, FourSquare, mobile apps, and beyond, how are foreign affairs departments adapting to this new digitally connected world? Moreover, how are embassies, consulates, and diplomats using social technologies for a new era of international relations?

 

In this panel, the governments of Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States, will unite to share insights on how their federal departments are integrating digital media into their communications strategies. From cultural diplomacy to foreign policy, hear how these governments are leveraging social media to digitally represent their nations to the world.
