Stephanie Joy Raison, the communications specialist at UNICEF, explained how monitored internet exposure to children could help them in developing their horizon of knowledge, and Rajat Arora, the policy programs manager, India and South Asia, Facebook, explains, “It took 60 years for Television to reach 1 billion viewers, and only 6 years for smartphones to reach 6 billion users. Humans love interacting, and that’s what is helping social media to grow, the need for building communities around us provokes it.”

The sessions were interactive and enriching and the last speaker, CEO of Culture Machine, kept an open offer for listeners’ during the Q&A section saying, “If you are innovative and have unique ideas, come to us, we will make them work.”

While the traditional  companies are still trying to get a hang of the utility and advantage of Social Media, such an event would have surely helped a few.

The event was organised by Simulations, Tej Soi Pro and Communications Karo.
