to follow the news live follow the news on twitter @ritachemaly
the challenges and opportunities of using the internet.
with the presence of Nahas for the first opening panel,
the secong panel: began with melodie, who explained to “lebanese” how to open pages on Facebook, and having a separate profile personal/work.
to sell a companie with pictures of its employees, after having studied the competitors, and the need to use social media….
One good presentations in the second panel:
mainly Jad Melki’s research about the habits of youth while using the internet,
the presentation was based on a research done with students between 13-28 years old.
the presentation was followed by Ayman Itani, who told us, the trends “a la mode” in the social media. how to poke, who is facebooking, what they are putting online.
then the Samer Karam has jumped in to speak about the social in social media: the social is the medium in social media.
the mode must fit the media? tv with a news paper… does it make sense? “akid” no.
social for karam is the interaction between the people. twitter in nothing, twitter is just tweets. without the conversations, interactions, and images, there is no social.
when we talk social media? we have to ask what it is to be social?
the virtual world: you have to follow other, and make other exists.
the interactions are the social and the social is the media. but what are the modes of this media?
you have to exist and to continue to exist!
Existing in the Consciencness of the pple.
persistence, relevance, influence.
influence is not just a matter of celebrity,
and for samer, there is more .. the media in social media is alive, it is a living breathing organism.
when you inject something it is not static,
the audience is your medium, the people who you are targeting are the peopel who you are targeting through.
if the modes is a circle, what should we do?
the triple E catalyst is the answer of Samer:
you can only activate the modes , persistence, relevance, influence,
by to be the catalyst, by seeding content,
you enable content, you engage, and then you empower!!!
voila, this is for samer, he resumed what I found out in my thesis about the impact of the internet and social media on societies.
