Hello everyone who contributed for the Social Media workshop #DA12social on Thursday in Brussels and to the many more who participated via Twitter and the live webstream. There was some great content created over the day.
It would be terrific if the conversation kept going...
The use of social media for business, government and as an industry in itself is in its infancy. We are all learning its true capability for transformation so it becomes vital that we share our knowledge and ideas so that we can make best use of it to benefit our economies.
I'd like to share some thinking that we did a little while ago about the potential for social networks and social media in changing how we engage with one another, how we might go about decision making differently and of course connect in new and inspiring ways.
Like any new tool we, on the one hand oversimplify what it is to include as many people in it as possible and underestimate the potential it has to disrupt what we do and how we do it.
