The Conversation Prism: A Visual Map of the Social Media Landscape

The Conversation Prism: A Visual Map of the Social Media Landscape | digitaldemocracy | Scoop.it

WHAT IS THE CONVERSATION PRISM?  Developed in 2008 by Brian Solis, The Conversation Prism is a visual map of the social media landscape. It’s an ongoing study in digital ethnography that tracks dominant and promising social networks and organizes them by how they’re used in everyday life.

First Digital Democracy Conference Bangkok | Center for Ethics of Science & Technology

First Digital Democracy Conference Bangkok | Center for Ethics of Science & Technology | digitaldemocracy | Scoop.it

The Internet has revolutionized the way of communication and has become a global connection network for everyone. The new level of connectivity and computer-mediated social interaction has slowly changed not only digital awareness of citizens, in terms of access to communication and privacy, but has also increased political awareness and public participation in political issues. Furthermore, the Internet has become a channel for the voices of citizens enabling all kinds of new political forces. And soon the Internet itself could be a major political cause.

 

This conference aims to explore a wide field of digital democracy from different points of view. We would like to initiate a new multidisciplinary research field to explore the arising issues related to digital democracy, especially in Southeast Asia. Furthermore, we would like to reach policy makers and IT-professionals, in order to cross communicate between both groups, especially in the issues concerning the use of information and communication technologies and strategies in political and governance processes.

Citizen Renaissance

Citizen Renaissance | digitaldemocracy | Scoop.it
Three years ago, Citizen Renaissance was published as a reaction to three seismic shifts in society - the rise of digital democracy, falling global wellbeing and an imminent environmental crisis.

 

The footballing cliché runs that teams must score when they are dominating the game. PR consultancies often manage early possession, but then struggle to find the back of the net.

 

It happened with CSR and with social and now with content, too – a failure to convert early-mover advantage into sustained leadership. We let others steal our clothes and then bemoan their encroachment on “our” space.

For a profession that prides itself on the quality of its strategic advice, it is perverse that we so consistently forget to take our own. This is partly a failure of visionary leadership; partly the lack of a rigorously defined point of view about our very purpose; but mostly a question of economics and business models.

 

With the exception of the big, consultancy networks, PR rarely achieves scale. And, where the holding company groups do deliver scale, so some of the choicest bits are invariably siphoned off to the media houses and ad guys. Why? Because they make a better case for the economics and are able to enumerate their arguments on a factual base. This is exactly what is now happening with content and data. PR is increasingly banished to the fringes....

A pessimistic point of view on PR that may apply to some but the agile PR agencies and PR pros prove otherwise.
