Venue: tba, The Dharmawangsa

Date: April 26, 2011

Time: 13:30

The social media – Twitter, Facebook etc – has emerged to become more

than a passing fad but a permanent fixture of internet users. News is increasingly broken through this medium, the furor of revolution disseminated through this public access channel and marketers have also embraced the technology as a means of promotion.

Asia too has embraced the phenomenon. According to checkfacebook.com

as of April Indonesia has the second highest number of registered and

active Facebook users with over 35 million members, second only in the

world after the United States. Included in the top 10 rankings are also the Philippines, India respectively with over 22 million users. Indonesia has also reported one of the highest numbers of Twitter users, with 20.8 percent of internet users in Indonesia visiting twitter.com

This seminar is aimed as a session for sharing ideas on how ANN members

can integrate and exploit the social media into their operations. Two sessions are planned: One looking at the integration of journalism with social-media, and second on potentials to ‘monetize’ the outreach to our benefit.
