A little history of Social Media NZ

Founded on the 25th of September 2009 SMNZ is a web-based resource bringing all things Social Media from New Zealand and around the world to one dedicated site.

We are made up of a small, but dedicated, team with a range of experience. From those that have been in the industry since it’s inception through to those who have social media embedded in their daily culture.

The team will work hard to bring you the very best news, views and opinions in the industry.
