Al Jazeera Social Media Forum

Each year Al Jazeera holds a forum for invited guests near its headquarters in Doha. This session on Sunday afternoon talks about the second phase of Social Media in the post-uprising in the Middle East. Social media is now being used to discuss what happens next. After a slow start, the discussion lead by Stephen Cole is very good in the second half.

Strange that the audio on Al Jazeera Forum is so poor - only one channel. They have spent a fortune on televising these sessions. Meanwhile have a look at this item from Sky News, where the reporter in Beijing is taken away from Tienanmen Square will still on the air. The police are just following instructions but have no clue is on the air live in the UK.
