Joitske Hulsebosch

So if we are floaded with information and conversations through social media how are we going to filter? You can not be as active in 50 networks (I've seen NGOs in Ghana try this!). But through social media you can be active in a few and still scan the other networks.

Social Media: A Cautionary Tale

Collaborative Thinking

Social media means different things to different people. For others, social media implies leveraging customer communities or use of social media by employees acting as brand ambassadors to the public.
