If you live in one of the six cities participating in Global Social Media Week, next week is jam-packed with parties, networking and educational events.The week of February 1st has been dubbed, "Global Social Media Week". This year six cities are participating: Berlin, London, New York, San Francisco, Sao Paolo and Toronto. Over 100 events span the week and cities and if you are an entrepreneur or consultant, you should be at as many events as possible. The majority of the events are free which gives you no excuse not to attend.

Some of the events are already sold out or at capacity but most have waiting lists.

Here are some of the events that will be held during the week:
