So I just discovered the WordPress app on my Blackberry. Which means I can blog on the move. For a while now I’ve been meaning to blog regularly; Lagos and the world the way I see it. I’ve been spending most of my online time on Twitter (have more or less been off Facebook for several weeks, shame), and now think I should redirect some of that time to blogging. Meanwhile Pinterest can always wait. There’s only so much one can do all at once.
One of the things I plan to blog about is social media. I’m finding myself moving away from being merely a participant to being both participant and analyser; moving along the spectrum towards the theorising end. This is I think largely driven by the fact that these days I find myself speaking publicly about my social networking, and about the relationship between social media and, say, journalism or activism or youth (culture). Yesterday I spoke at the second edition of the Youth Marketing Conference (YMC2.0) in Lagos, alongside Japheth Omojuwa and South African Mike Saunders. I spoke briefly on the topic: “Increasing voice share: content or frequency?”
