#TrendingForward The attendance of the first summit is expected to be diverse as they will be coming from the academe, youth sector, business sector leaders, and government institutions. Their attendance, however, will be united by one goal: “#TrendingForward." The summit’s theme is the summation of two words: "Trending" + "Forward" "Trending" means "the general direction in which something tends to move." Each individual or company may have separate goals, but the ultimate goal of any “social media influencer" is to create a buzz for a social cause he/she is supporting. "Forward" is being used to depict the innovation/presentation that each social media influencers should do to reach and influence the target audience. Buzz is not created by all. It is practiced by those who had mastered it. And this craft is fast changing with the dynamic preference and attitudes of the social media users.
