Kohima, Sept. 18: A one-day media seminar will be held here at 10am on September 21 with minister for roads and bridges, Kuzholuzo Nienu, as the chief guest.
In view of the fast “global scenario” and the “unprecedented growth of social media” the Kohima Press Club has taken the initiative to organise the seminar.
The media in Nagaland cannot remain isolated from this fast-growing information technology and there is no way but to accept to be part of the changes, says the KPC concept paper.
It says that over the last year, people have seen how social media has captured the minds of the world communities and the people of Nagaland are no exception to this.
“In fact, social media has greatly impacted our lifestyles,” the KPC concept paper says.
“Opinions formed on social media can change the mindsets of bureaucrats and politicians in the state. Most importantly, the masses, particularly the youth, have been greatly influenced by social media,” it adds
Veteran journalist and author Charles Chasie will present a paper on the topic, the role of media in the midst of social media invasion, while Limawati Ao, joint director, information and public relations, will present a paper on the topic, the impact of social media in our lifestyles and society at the seminar.
