1400 - 1530 : Parallel Session 2: Facilitating Citizens’ Engagement during Elections

Social media offers opportunities for openness, participation, collaboration and interactivity that facilitate citizens’ engagement. Its many platforms can be useful during elections. Citizens can ask questions and solicit information on issues and events that affect their lives. They can participate in debate and discussion, and share their insights and feedback critical for the functioning of a healthy society. To what extent have social media platforms impacted elections and political agenda setting, particularly in countries with different media systems, different political systems and different population sizes? How can broadcasters interlink effectively with social media as a place of conversation for electoral issues and personalities? What are some best practices?

Day 1 - Tuesday, 26th May 2015

1115 - 1215 : Effective Strategies to Build Markets, Content and Business

More than developing a social media website, broadcasters need a social media strategy that will innovatively enhance their audience engagement, programmes, sales and promotion, research and their brand. Integrating the social media strategy into the overall business plan that reinforces each other becomes critical, and this can be done in a structured and effective manner. To catch audiences and boost ratings, should broadcasting organisations adopt social media anywhere, anytime and how? Do they have a clear vision and a set of strategies to deal with the benefits and risks of social media to business? How can broadcasters exploit social media to monetise opportunities, improve branding and ensure sustainability? How can broadcasters best measure the effectiveness and value for money of social media engagement?

0945 - 1045 : Social Media’s Landscape, Trends and its Future

Social media is a vast and complex landscape to master, and players in this territory are afforded a wide range of functionalities to create content, publish, share, discuss and network. It enriches engagement with people, events and brands that matter to them. The broadcast industry needs to understand social media’s practical role and influence in business and society. What are the innovations and trends in social media’s usage, functionalities, and activities? Should broadcasters be concerned with its continued growth? Are they monitoring and exploiting social media and in what ways? Do they have policies to minimise social media’s misuse and other risks? What does the future hold beyond Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, among others?
