- Check slides 10-13 on the history of the internet and evolution of social media. What do you learn from them?
About the history of the internet, I learnt that he was created in 1969, before, I thought that was invented later. But for the social media apart the invention of the internet there are other things that are important too like the telephones, postal service, pneumatic post and radio. After that, the email was invented, and this also now we used, but actualiced. The social medias that young people use or the companies nowadays use were starting created in 2003, with Facebook and MySpace amoung others. It´s true that the blogger was started before in 1999. After this social medias started another ones like YouTube (2005) and Twitter (2006).
They are like 3 tipes of internet:
In the beginning the internet was web 1, only you can read. The next step was to become in the web 2, here apart from read you can write and participate too. And now we are in the thihrd sep, here the internet apart from the things that could do it before you can execute also.

- Check out the video summaries for the European Communication Monitor and the Asia-Pacific Communication Monitor. What are the biggest challenges communicators are facing?
EUROPEAN COMMUNICATION MONITOR
Communicators said that they have importance trends, but that the have difficulties to used every day. A lot communicators said that advertaising and media are loosing importance. Only the 50% use listening strategics and the 55% try to demostrate the economical impact of communication. Only 36% off communication departments have instruments to measure results. Many organization spend time and money on evaluating communication, but many still focus on media and channels.
ASIA PACIFIC COMMUNICATION MONITOR
Approaching mass media to get coverage to get more importance. To produce the own media is also relevant. Only 1/3 of respondents believes in rise of advertising and media sponsoring and the half of communicators see traditional printing media being important in future. Biggest challenges with Asia-Pacific Communication Monitor meets is coping with digital revolution, linking business strategy and communication and building and maintaining trust.
- Check out the Greenpeace vs Nestle case study (see slide 38). What did Nestle do wrong?
Nestle is using palm oil of companies that they are doing things to the nature, environment and society that they are not good, like for example trashing Indonesian rainforest and threatening the livehoods of the local people.
After, if Nestle is laying when they said that they didn´t by the palm oil, the image of Nestle can be damage, because apart from the bad action that they did, they don´t recognise it, they start lying, so consumer could be get angry with the company and stop buying things of Nestle, this also depends on the consume reaction, because every consumer react in different forms
- Watch the videos in the “assumptions” section (slides 42-51) on the digital divide, long tail, cult of the amateur, technological determinism and net delusion. Summarize the main point of the video. Write up in a short paragraph what (as a communicator/marketer) you learn from them.
- 1) DIGITAL DIVIDE
Digital divide is composed by acces to technology and knowledge and skills of how to use it. This can lead to discrimination, exclusion of certains groups and loss of income amoung others. And this technology can be used in telephones, computers and in internet.
- 2) LONG TAIL
This speaks about the economy and culture. Its says that more and more, there are taking more importance the online shops and that in some years, the people instead of doing the shoping in the real shops, market, they will do it by online, in the online shops. And after its says that this could have consecuences, for example the persons that where workingin the shop, maybe instead of working 4 they need only 1 or 2, so, it would be more unempleyment rate.
- 3) CULT OF THE AMATEUR
In the book of Andrew Keen, speaks that in the 21st century, in internet, amateur people is taking the place of the proffesional ones. And that sometimes the information that we can find can be wrong. Because there are examples that you wanted to find information about something and you find 2 different test and with different information, and you don´t know what is the correct one. Also, they take information taking out of the context, and they used in the way that they interes. Finally, it speaks about the blogs, he said that they confuse the opinion of the people.
- 4) TECHNOLOGICAL DETERMINISM
This video speaks that the computers can destroi our lives, but we have to take a decision. Internet works to save our time, not to loos it. Also people use it to developed, to be more efficiant.
- 5) NET DELUSION
Here said that behind the technological lies make a combination between utopianism and ignorance to the internet´s political and potential. Also its said that the democratazing power of the new media will bring the entrechment of the authoritarian regimes.
