  • Nowadays, you very much exist for what you share. And what you share is what people will know from you, from Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn. However, I existed even before Google (yes!). Was brought up in France, stuudied political sciences & communications, started working on the web, then engaged in humanitarian action with the ICRC (Angola, Cambodia, Darfur). Started working again as a digital project manager in Zimbabwe, now in Lesotho. Take care of web sites & social media, and also interested in ICT for development.
  • I’d like make a quick poll here and check how many of you ahve a personal blog? (etc?)
  • Now I ‘d like to know about you, and more specifically:
    - What comes to your mind when you think of social media?
    How do you use social media currently?
    what has been your latest post on facebook or twitter (if any),
    what is your biggest frustration with it, and possibly what you’d like to be able to do beyond your current use – what prevents you to do it?
  • Now lets us start, but please relax:
    All references and links in this presentation will be made available to you on this URL
    We are going to talk tech, but no jargon allowed.
  • Now lets us start, but please relax:
    All references and links in this presentation will be made available to you on this URL
    We are going to talk tech, but no jargon allowed.
  • How to join a community & connect with authorative people
    Ways to crowdsource stories, opinions, alerts
    Ways to dig into the data & get a lot of material – for free
  • Every 60 seconds in the world, you get 695000 status updates (+/-= Google queries) 98 000 tweets, 6600 new pictures uploaded on Flickr, 600 new videos, 20 000 new blog posts on Tumblr,60 new blogs, 100 new linked in accounts, …
    If Wikipedia was ùmade into a book,; it would be 2.25 million pages long and take 123 years to read
  • Every 60 seconds in the world, you get 695000 status updates (+/-= Google queries) 98 000 tweets, 6600 new pictures uploaded on Flickr, 600 new videos, 20 000 new blog posts on Tumblr,60 new blogs, 100 new linked in accounts, …
  • So one may call this « the biggest shift since the industrial revolution »
  • And for those who need more evidence to be convinced, I would recommend a video you can find on Youtube that was updated with latest statistics and facts. Now their conclusion is:
  • Now you may tell me… this does not apply to us here in Africa…?
    That would be without counting with African inventivity!
    (…)
    Now this may sound like a Hype, but statistics are here.
  • Now you may tell me… this does not apply to us here in Africa…?
    That would be without counting with African inventivity!
    (…)
    Now this may sound like a Hype, but statistics are here.
  • SA stats here (…)
    Afria is the fastest growing mobile market in the world.
    The United Nations Children's Fund, UNICEF, conducted a survey to better understand how young people spend their free time. MXit was the answer for 30 percent of respondents - far more popular than watching TV, talking with family and friends, reading and - not surprisingly - homework.

Others forward the tweets via text message.
