A Look Back (And Ahead) At Social Media’s Impact by Andres

1 Aug

It is clear that social networks and the Internet are here to stay and compare our habits of communication, to see the world through the news … But also to do business!

Toby Daniels is the CEO and founder of Crowdcentric of Social Media Week, Which is Taking Place This Week., Tells us several important things, about how social networks have made ​​an impact in this globalized world.

For example, we all know what happened to “Wikileaks” in November 2010, and the diplomatic scandal that will still generate gender and Mr. Julian Assange, who for many is “Superman” or a hero by showing what other countries do not want to show Diplomacy in its policy, as does the United States, England and other countries of importance in the Orb. Well, good luck to Mr. Assange for his courage, a courage that is producing many problems. But this burst and was made possible thanks to social networks.

Other cases of successful communication and knowledge of journalistic Vedad, is what we see in Twitter postings, on the news, such as problems in Tunisia, Egypt and Lybia; countries very close in information, but thanks to the technology and social networks, has been able to see and experience another reality of these countries and their conflicts …. You do not need a super reporter Sony camera … Today makes your Smartphone and last but not least, thanks to YouTube, everybody knows in a couple of minutes … Incredible!!. This point leads to companies changing their style of to do news and to develop and work with social networks. The customer wants to be connected.

Perhaps one of the significant ways social media has changed our world is in how we view and react to disasters. Today, millions can bear witness to disasters and the immediate aftermath from half way around the world. When an 8.9-magnitude earthquake shook the coast of Japan in March, millions of people were able to watch the resulting tsunami in near real-time. With phone outages that followed, Twitter and Facebook became lifelines to loved ones for Japanese affected by the disaster.
So, what’s next?

The next will be How the social media fully integrated into their business models begin to take a much bigger stake in their respective markets, especially in Tourism business, but you will see in my next e-post!!!
