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?
