  • Bonjour, je suis tres reconnaissante a Miora pour m’avoir inviter ici aujourd’hui. Aujourd’hui je vais parler du web 2.0 – pourquoi c’est important pour vous, des entrepreneurs sociaux et autres et ce que vous pouvez en faire. J’avais donne un titre un peu different a la presentation …plutot , pourquoi le media social est important pour vous? Mais en effet, le monde du web 2.0 n’est pas important a moins qu’on veut faire partie de la conversation qui est en train de se derouler dans le web en ce moment. Donc si vous etes en train de developper un business plan et vous voulez trouvez des financiers, peut-etre cette conversation ne va pas etre aussi interressante. Mais si votre etes train de creer un site internet, alors vous allez peut-etre avoir une meilleure raison de plonger dans ce monde de media social.
  • Les applications evoluent vers un partage centr é sur l’utilisateur. Le web social donne aux utilisateurs l’opportunite de creer leur propre contenu et aussi ils peuvent avoir une interaction entre les autres utilisateurs – partage du conteu et des services You have to have the right mindset, give up control for the benefits of other people carrying your message But you don’t get to ‘control’ what is said about you….if you want to do this, you don’t want to do social media. But if you want to create free impressions of your brand and spread you brand widely, then this is where you want to be. We’re shepherds or gardeners of our brand, but we don’t control our brand.
