Can You Hear Me Now?

Can You Hear Me Now? | Linking Social Media to Social Change | Scoop.it
Thanks to technology, people have never been more connected--or more alienated.
Momal Mushtaq's insight:

Michel Foucault’s idea of the panopticon, an architectural structure of spokes of a wheel built out from a hub, used as a metaphor for how the modern state disciplines its citizens. When the panopticon serves as a model for a prison, a guard stands at its center. Since each prisoner (citizen) knows that the guard might be looking at him or her at any moment, the question of whether the guard is actually looking–or if there is a guard at all–ceases to matter. The structure itself has created its disciplined citizen. By analogy, said my conversation partner at the cocktail hour, on the Internet someone might always be watching; it doesn’t matter if from time to time someone is. Foucault’s discussion of the panopticon had been a critical take on disciplinary society. Here it had become a justification for the U.S. government to spy on its citizens. All around me there were nods of assent.

Is Sandberg Leaning Out? | Linking Social Media to Social Change | Scoop.it
[The Daily Beast] About 66 minutes into Facebook’s annual shareholder meeting earlier this week, a stockowner stood up and posed a question to Sheryl Sandberg, the ...
Momal Mushtaq's insight:
At the meeting, Mark Zuckerberg rubbished the notion that Sandberg was using Lean In as a way of leaning out. "I think Sheryl is going to be here for awhile." And there's no evidence to suggest she has a foot out the door. But as the guy who invented Facebook should know, status updates are prone to change.

Momal Mushtaq's insight:

According to the infograph from Frankie Rendón, in a study by the Red Cross, 76% of respondents had used social media to determine whether or not a loved one was safe after a disaster, and an additional 25% had gone on to download a diaster-related app of some kind. 24% of respondents had actually been in a disaster and had used social media to let loved ones know they were safe.

The truth about the impact of Social Media strategies - JulienRio.com | Linking Social Media to Social Change | Scoop.it
It is now common for companies to develop Social Media strategies and to hire Social Media Managers in order to boost their online presence. But what can you really expect from Social Media Marketing?
Momal Mushtaq's insight:

You should only move to Social Media when you want to build up your brand, when you have sufficient resources to reply your customers online, when you have sufficient manpower to post content regularly and when you are keen to know your customers better and accept their feedback. Once you have all these, once you've accepted that Social Media is all about branding and not about sales, once you agreed that your main objective should be to build engagement instead of growing your followers' base, then build up your Social Media Strategy.

China’s Entrenched Gender Gap

China’s Entrenched Gender Gap | Linking Social Media to Social Change | Scoop.it
Despite widespread reports to the contrary, women are losing ground in the competition for urban jobs.
Momal Mushtaq's insight:

The 2010 census put the percentage of working-age women in the work force at 74. The figure stacks up well against other countries such as the United States and Australia, where about 75 percent of working-age women were employed in 2010. In Sweden, the female labor force participation for 2010 was 87.5 percent; France, 84 percent; Britain, 79 percent. But China’s figure is high because it includes women working in the countryside, and unlike developed countries, nearly half of China’s population is still rural. The picture forurban women is very different.
