Talking with a Chinese friend about QQ and WeChat, and a Japanese friend about Voxer and Viber. Both v evangelical!
My Chinese friend said WeChat is important as a personal diary, diary for friends and keeping her husband in China up to date with her life while she is studying in New Zealand. She got the idea from her Malaysian friend (also in New Zealand) who posts a photo everyday. So she does the same now; posting a photo and short text with it almost everyday. She wants to remember where she was and what she was doing.
She’s really social, so she’s always on QQ on her phone: it’s a really important way to stay in touch.
I went to the brill Barcampnfp last week. There was an interesting session in the morning on charities and social media: here are 5 useful points that were made and could form the basis of any good social media policy, non-profit or otherwise!
The Tumblr, for all its webbiness, embraced a kind of back-to-the-future sensibility: a suggestion of what campaign messaging looked like in previous ages, when it played out on the community level.
