Social Good Summit Cebu on September 22: Using Social Media for Social Change
Social Good Summit organized by Mashable is a 3-day conference from September 22-24 with a shared goal of "unlocking the potential of new media and technology to make the world a better place, and then to translate that potential into action."
In Cebu City, the Social Good Summit Cebu is organized by the Cebu Bloggers Society and will be held on September 22, 2012 from 8:30 AM to 12:00 NOON at the Marcelo Fernan Cebu Press Center, Sudlon, Lahug, Cebu City. The focus of the discussions is using social media to bring about social change as well as promote responsible use of social media.
This local event will be highlighted by talks or discussions which may prove useful especially to students who among other groups are more commonly engaged in social media. Topics include "State of the Social Media Scene in Cebu", "Social media Responsibility Defined", "Inspiring Change through Blogging and Social Media", "Social Movement via Social Media", "Impact of Social Media Influencers in Social Media" and "Social Media Engagement, Ethics and Legal Issues."
Another highlight also will be the launching of Cebu Bloggers Society's "ActNow Campaign", a special website where anyone could make a difference headed by CBSi Outreach Committee, Jaysee Pingkian.
Let us use social media for good. Attending this event is a good start.
