The Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street and the Ukraine crisis have provided clear examples of the radical impact social media has on the way information and news is produced, distributed and consumed. There is no doubt that social media provides an outlet for an important extra layer of information and diverse opinions outside traditional media.
What impact does this have on traditional journalism? How is social media influencing conventional methods of reporting? And will social media platforms ultimately replace traditional media?
The panel will discuss this topic with eminent panelists from Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and Pakistan.
