No matter where you are in the world, it’s likely there is a local edition as well, take a look at the “all channels” drop down menu for locations, which include my native Australia as well as Europe (I’m now based in The Netherlands)

They cover several of my favourite topics including entrepreneur(ship) and social media and have neat sections on life hacks and shareables – perfect if you’re looking for interesting and relevant content to share on own social media channels.

You can also explore other sections of http://thenextweb.com/ including their quarterly magazine Shift (available as an iPad edition via the iTunes store) and there is also a Pro version offering a free trial where you can share their material without banner ads and your name shown publicly as the sharer.

Of course with my passion for lifelong learning (did you see my article on the e-learning explosion?) I am excited to see they have The Next Web Academy coming soon.

Overall, The Next Web is a great resource for anyone wanting to keep up with the fast-paced world of social media and offer a wide range of services.  Well worth a look!
