    • Social networks & new media Online audio content Sanjana Hattotuwa TEDGlobal Fellow 2010 Editor, Groundviews (www.groundviews.org)
    • what is social media? • Social media uses Internet and web-based technologies to transform broadcast media monologues (one to many) into social media dialogues (many to many). It supports the democratization of knowledge and information, transforming people from content consumers into content producers. (Wikipedia)
    • what is new media? • New media is a term meant to encompass the emergence of digital, computerized, or networked information and communication technologies. • New media is not television programs, feature films, magazines, books, or paper-based publications. (Wikipedia) • But increasingly, old media is leveraging the web, Internet and mobiles in generating and disseminating news and information.
    • new media and foundations • Blogs • Social networks (Twitter, Facebook) • Google Maps and mashups • Mobiles: SMS, mobile photography and video • VoIP: Skype, Google Chat • And making this all possible is ADSL, 3G wireless broadband
    • what’s new • Ubiquity of two way communications • Addressable peoples, even those who IDPs or refugees • Both news generation and dissemination leverages new media • Disintermediated models vs. traditional media model • Citizens as producers • Low resolution content broadcast on high definition media
    • enduring challenges • Impartial, accurate coverage still vital, increasingly hard to ascertain • Torrent of information. Trickle of knowledge. • Veracity / Verifiability hard to determine • Post-disaster communications can be unreliable and difficult. Eye-witness accounts are partial, subjective. • New media / technology illiteracy even amongst journalists • Apathy and animosity against citizen journalism • Licensing and attribution of online content
