Relevance: 

Since the inception of social media the world has seen a surge in online networking. Today everything is seen moving towards or driven by social media. The business owners are fast adopting new-social-media strategies discounting the old-fashioned techniques to make their target audience engagement more effective. The social media has taken the world of journalism and development by storm and especially the way we consume content today. Hence, there is a need for an association of strong social media managers, strategist, experts and professionals to evaluate, analyze, review and monitor the current social media and internet practices. The issue is not based on previous work for advancing the discussion.

Online Participation: 

ASMP believe that offline and online combination helps to achieve real outcome. What we discuss on virtual platform should be taken to the ground for understanding the real challenges of that particular domain. Hence, we apply the same logic here, while ion case of IGF live workshop , should also be broadcasted online using various tools of communication. This will be done by mapping the time zone of each country to have maximum online participation.

Discussion Facilitation: 

Our preference would be to have panel discussion followed by experts' remark/ recommendation keeping all discussion and Q&A (offline&online) in mind.
