About The Social Web
Social Web is the training division of HDU SEO the company collectively responsible for a number of products and services designed to make easy sense of the opportunities presented by the rise of social media.
The two arms of HDU SEO are Social Web, a training and consultancy resource covering all fields related to social media and online PR, and Social Media Library, an intelligent social media database which provides up-to-date information on the most influential social media contacts in the UK.
Social Web was launched in July 2013 and provides workshop seminars across a wide selection of social media topics created for different vertical sectors. The Academy also organises conferences tailored to specific sectors as well as providing bespoke in-house training sessions on any aspect of social media. Over 100 delegates have now been trained through Social Web with delegates travelling from across Europe to attend events.
Social Media Library, which started in October 2008, is the only available UK database of social media contacts covering blogs, Twitter, social networks, podcasts and forums that are fully categorised by topic and location. The Archive and Barometer tools allow you to track social media conversations relevant to your client or brand.
HDU was founded by digital communications experts Sarah Cowell and Catherine Smart, who were previously behind onlinefire, one of the UK's first specialist online PR agencies.
