Social Media and Cambodian Youth: It’s Not Just Facebook: Other Social Media Platforms

Moderated by The Cambodia Daily’s Online Editor Joshua Wilwohl, I was one of the panelists talking about “It’s Not Just Facebook: Other Social Media Platforms”.

My argument is Google+ is going to take off and possible taking over Facebook (in Cambodia) thanks to Google’s owned Motorola and its budget smartphones and Android ecosystem, which will be emerging as Microsoft in the PC era. If you’ve used Gmail and YouTube, chance is that you’ll be converted to a Google+ user. While a growing number of new mobile Internet users buy smartphones to stay connected on Facebook, one of the pre-installed apps on their phones is Google+, the Internet Explorer that took down Netscape Navigator.

Below is the agenda for today’s discussion at Pannasastra University of Cambodia. Thanks Chantra Be, a social media strategist, and Raymond Leos, Dean, Faculty of Communications and Media Arts Pannasastra University of Cambodia, for inviting me to be a panelist. The panelists contributed some great insights into where we’re going forward in digital and social media trend.
