Social Media is fast becoming one of the largest uses of bandwidth on the Internet. Why is this the case?... where did it come from? and where is it going?

Social Media is an umbrella term that defines the various activities that integrate technology, social interaction, and the construction of words, pictures, videos and audio. (Wikipedia) Social Media is a ‘two-way’ medium. It is people having conversations online - It cannot happen in a one-way mediums. i.e.TV, Radio, Newspapers, etc
  5. 5. Social Media on Mobiles Asia Peering Forum, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - September 2011 CULTURE OR GEOGRAPHICAL? It is my personal belief that Social Media, its trends, the issues it faces and the contents of this presentation are relevant EVERYWHERE. The only difference is WHEN, not ‘if’ it will happen in your country, local area, age demographic or language. *Most facts in this presentation are US/Western based

  10. 10. Social Media on Mobiles Asia Peering Forum, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - September 2011 SOCIAL MEDIA SECURITY The emergence of social media and proliferation of mobile devices have provided new avenues for malware and different forms of cyber attacks, a new report from an Internet security firm has found. The findings were contained in Symantec’s Internet Security Threat Report,Volume 16, which showed a massive threat volume of more than 286 million new threats last year, accompanied by several new megatrends in the threat landscape. A large spam attack hit Facebook in the last week ‘ LIKE Spam’ - now referred to as ‘LikeJacking’ - mostly annoyance but could be a serious threat depending on the information they can access. A massive attack could have a profound impact on the network infrastructure of ISPs, IXs and so on. Think of a Social Media platform with an ‘app’ getting hacked and having hundreds of millions of PC’s participate in an attack... ? ouch.Think of half a billion phones attacking?
  11. 11. Social Media on Mobiles Asia Peering Forum, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - September 2011 SOCIAL MEDIA IN A CRISIS Japan • Disseminating news • Capturing news - unprecedented eyewitness videos • Skype,Twitter, Facebook and Mixi used to tell their whereabouts and status • Within 1 hour of the earthquake 1,200 tweets per minute were from Tokyo • By the end of the day, 240,000 tweets had the hashtag #earthquakeinjapan • In 1 day, 4.5 million people changed their status on Facebook to include: Earthquake, Japan or Tsunami • Google setup “Person Finder” web app - over 620,000 records • Mayor Katsunobu Sakurai of Minami Soma City plead for help onYouTube. As of April 10 the video has been watched 330,000 times
  12. 12. Social Media on Mobiles Asia Peering Forum, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - September 2011 AFFECTING POLITICAL CHANGE Tunisia • Citizens discovered the revolution via Social Media • They informed one another of updates, meetings, rally points, etc • They mobilised using Social Media - co-ordinated • SMS (Text Messages) and Twitter the most used • Al Jazeera recognised the coming revolution by reading blogs, following tweets and other social media avenues “I am certain its (the revolution’s) success is entirely correlated to the ubiquity of the mobile phone and the Internet,” blogged Aly-Khan Saatchu, an investments banker based in Nairobi. • Egypt, Lybia, Syria, China (tried to - but authorities were ready!) Others will come •
  13. 13. Social Media on Mobiles Asia Peering Forum, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - September 2011 SOCIAL MEDIA ON MOBILES • Social Media did not really exist on early mobile phones • Early phones did not have the ‘app’ capabilities - or were too weak • Small screens, low-res graphics, pre-color • WAP didn’t cut it - not media rich enough, transactional • Smart Phones are the #1 reason for the growth • Provided the ability for Apps • Hi-res graphics • Real Internet connection • New Tablets will enable richer content creation while on the move • Mobile Providers using free traffic to SM as incentives • Will video ever be popular? TV, Video Calls, Skype, Facetime, etc... weak uptake From Low-End Basic Phones... ...to Feature Phones... ...to High-End Smartphones
  14. 14. Social Media on Mobiles Asia Peering Forum, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - September 2011 SOCIAL MEDIA ON MOBILES • Mobile networks changing - 4G.... what’s next? • How fast do we need? What will it give us? • Social Media appliances -YouTube cameras, Flip, etc • Mobile doesn’t have to be live - feature for later download • Cheaper smart phones will accelerate demand in many Asian countries • If a cheap handset appeared - hundreds of millions would start using Social Media online in a very short period of time (update to this) • Would the Telco’s actually be ready for that number of people? • Handset subsidies could help - Telco orVendor - contracts a problem in Asia • Android is assisting the take up of smart phones - free to manufacturers and developers.
  15. 15. Social Media on Mobiles Asia Peering Forum, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - September 2011 PSYCHOLOGY OF SOCIAL MEDIA We’re desperate to communicate - always have been, always will be We’re social creatures by nature - age, race, social demographics don’t matter anymore Classic media is ‘one-way’ - TV will change, radio will change - maybe movies will change? Socially Influenced TV? Many shows showing #hashtag for social interaction between viewers? I’ve seen interesting examples of social media TV in Hong Kong Advertisers are desperate to be relevant - but are terrified of consumers who talk back I have something to say and I WILL be heard We are starting to tolerate deception by advertising much less - tell me the truth Social Activism - Online tsunami can mean an offline response More about the mind and less about the physical - Social Media is removing classic barriers of beauty, fashion, age and sex - which is why online dating is so popular - get to know before physical judgement Millennials (born 1999>) are now 11-12 years old - they LIVE and breathe Social Media - 96% Social Media will target younger and young... remember Tamagotchi.. today 76million
  16. 16. Social Media on Mobiles Asia Peering Forum, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - September 2011 SOCIAL MEDIA & PEERING • Why Peer? • Free (?) Traffic • A significant amount of consumer ISP’s transit is Social related • Video/Skype • Photo’s • Faster than transit (you hope) • Allows for marketing uses - engineering assisting in economics • Quickly respond to peering demands • G+ was massive in weeks... but what is next? • Social Media bursts and attacks - who is growing today? • iCloud.What will it be able to do... will you be ready?
  17. 17. Social Media on Mobiles Asia Peering Forum, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - September 2011 FUTURE OF SOCIAL MEDIA Smaller, Cheaper Netbooks, Smarter Phones,Tablet revolution, Combo devices (Phone, Smart Phone, Game Console in one) will create a richer experience with more creative implementations What is a smart ‘device’? A watch, jewellery, accessories and even clothing will become smart - what will be the next big thing? Consumers will dominate - the importance of advertising will fade - that my friends, friends friends friends like it will be good enough for me! What is next? Microsoft has to enter the SM war (Skype?) Social Media will become war of the retailers vs consumers - ‘you suck!’ ‘no I don’t!’ A new role for small business - Reputation Managers. Social Media will separate from advertising and Marketing. Do I hear a CSO (Chief Social Officer) position coming? Social Incentives (Bribery) will explode - ala FourSquare - COME TO ME INSTEAD! Social Media will create a richer, tailored ‘off-line’ experience Social Media specific devices? Facebook Phone? TwitterPager? Exclusive features?
  18. 18. Social Media on Mobiles Asia Peering Forum, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - September 2011 INFINITE MONKEYTHEOREM A million monkeys hitting keys at random on a typewriter for an infinite period will eventually produce the entire works of shakespeare. The Internet has proven this wrong! Social Media is proving it wrong every second
