The events around the Boston Marathon bombing this week have triggered a lot of emotions. We have seen a new quality of Social Media use in many areas.
As a Social Media consultant I often write about the How, What, Why and tips and tricks to make your experience more rewarding. As much as I love doing that Social Media is much more than that – it represents a fundamental shift in our lives – a shift that can be compared to the impact of the printing press or the industrial revolution.
With the help of many friends I co-organized an event yesterday that brought the struggle of the Syrian people into our small city of Kelowna, BC
Social media is the revolutionary tool of the new millennium. Revolutionaries no longer wield swords or are on the attack like in previous eras. The Syrian revolutionary is in the form of a citizen journalist; one of the most noble, important and dangerous roles of the revolution. They are equipped with camera phones or maybe camcorders, and film tragedy on a daily basis.
Syria Session on Thursday, April 26th at 5 pm at the
Bohemian Cafe on Bernard Ave, downtown Kelowna.
Join us for an open discussion about the politics, violence, and citizen journalism in Syria that is making headlines around the world.
Three speakers will help shed light on the complicated issues surrounding the current situation. They have, in some capacity, been directly involved in the movement that has cost thousands of Syrian lives.
Social Media is one of the most over-used phrases these days. Everybody knows a little bit about it but few could answer what it really is.
