The new media

Attempts to maximise opportunities presented by the new media and manage electronic vandalism in Nigeria, will be the focus of a two-day workshop, which will commence today (Tuesday) in Lagos.

The workshop, which is a collaboration between the African Media Network and the Nigerian Press Council, according to a statement by the President/CEO AMNETT, Aniekan Umanah, said: “The workshop will provide  insights into  new media  opportunities, advantages  and exploration for the benefit of government, corporate bodies and individuals.”

Umanah said the social media, being the “most popular haunts on the internet”, had revolutionised the way people communicate and socialise. But the conspicuous and uncontrolled effects of the new media had left government policies, programmes, organisations and officials, including children and women falling prey to electronic vandalism which often create falsehood, image erosion, tension and distress.

Umanah further stressed that the workshop, targeted at Information and corporate communication managers, would emphasise the need for key officials saddled with new media management responsibilities to be equipped with requisite knowledge and skills needed to confront the negative effect of new media and position their organisations for improved productivity and acceptability.
