How to make the best use of the “social media”

Posted in Uncategorized by filizefe on July 1, 2009

Clay Shirky talks about “transformed media landscape” and “what it means for anybody who has a message to get out anywhere in the world”. Social media puts the end to top-down control of news and this is changing the nature of politics globally.

The choice we face, I mean for anybody who has a message they want to have heard anywhere in the world, isn’t whether that’s the media environment we want to operate in, that’s the media environment we’ve got. The question we all face now is how we can make best use of this medium, even though it means changing the way we’ve always done.

My answer to Shirky’s question would be “storytelling is the key to make the best use of social media”.
