The social media (r)evolution?

Asian Perspectives on New Media

Also available in Deutsch

"The social media (r)evolution? Asian perspectives on new media" is a compilation of 13 articles that discuss social media developments and trends in Asia. For this publication we invited eleven alumni from the Konrad Adenauer Asian Center for Journalism (ACFJ) at the Ateneo de Manila University in the Philippines to share their views on social media issues based on their inside knowledge and hands-on experience.

The authors from six different countries provide insight into various new media trends and present diversified approaches, ranging from Cambodia, with comparably low Internet penetration, to Indonesia, which is considered the second biggest Facebook “nation” in the world.
