The 62nd Social Media Breakfast – “Knowledge sharing & Crowdsourcing on Social Media”– The Delhi Chapter
It was indeed “knowledge sharing” that happened today, not on Social Media but at the Social Media Breakfast. At the 62nd Social Media Breakfast the members differentiated information from data; knowledge from information and Knowledge sharing from mere sharing. The Social Media Breakfasts are sponsored by Twitsnaps.com, a Compare Infobase Limited project.
Members concentrated in divaricating Crowdsourcing from outsourcing. Crowdsourcing is outsourcing job to a large group or a community through an announcement. Crowdsourcing can be done through Twitter using hashtags and through Facebook using Fanpages.
The MeetUp group assembled at Compare Knowledge Center at Ray’s IT Park, Kolkata at around 8:45 a.m. for attending the 40th Social Media Breakfast Session. The topic of the discussion was “Google+: The plus and minus of it?” Each and every member tried to contribute with useful inputs and viewpoints on Google+.
