Title: Social Media 4 Machas
Bringing together 3 social media projects that have been initiated over the past year, this conversation will present groups & individuals who are harnessing virtual connections for powerful forms of engagement, as opposed to just a medium of staying on touch with friends and peeking into their daily activities.
Facilitated by PopTeeVee’s Hardesh Singh, this event will also speculate on the recent and upcoming impact that social media will have on news, journalism, activism, collaboration and innovation.
