Pinoy_Blogfest 2.0 advocates social media for social good
Did you know that Filipinos are once again acknowledged as among the most active social media users (via FaceBook, Twitter, Multiply, Tumblr, Flickr, YouTube, + the likes) + Filipino bloggers are challenged to explore the potential of social media as an influential force in Philippine society? Do you want to be part of it?
Aptly-themed “Social media as an agent for change” Pinoy_Blogfest 2.0, happens on Friday, 05 August 2011, at the TriNoma Activity Center + if you happen to be doing nothing on that day, you might as well join in for a day of positivity + social media awareness!
