Hey Social Media Gang, Class of 2011!
Five days left until ACOMM’s first ever Social Media Summit on December 10!
ACOMM with Yahoo! Philippines presents “Time Out: Is social media changing the online playground?” We want you to join our Social Media Summit and find out!
Social Media Summit is a whole day event where a series of talks and workshops will be conducted by prominent media practitioners and social media experts to Ateneans, and invited delegates from chosen high school and colleges.
Our theme “Time Out” revolves around the idea that the Internet is like an online playground where rules of social media etiquette are simultaneously broken and built by the citizens who play around and experiment in it. Through this event, ACOMM wants to take the “Time Out” to empower its participants to think critically and act responsibly about various issues that have been emerging.
