Your 2010 Social Media Story as a Kenyan?

Your 2010 Social Media Story as a Kenyan?

This has been a tremendous year for Socialight Media and Social Media in Kenya.

Social Media has grown in leaps and bounds and Socialight Media Kenya is honored to have been here to cover aspects of this growth especially those that relate to Kenyan Businesses and their use of social media as well as the rise of the Kenyan consumer voice through these social channels.

2010 has been referred as the year of social business formation and from the happening in Kenya alone, I think we can all affirm that this has been the case as well. Kenyans have taken to social media with drive and passion and have forced businesses as well to look at social media with renewed interest. It has not been a year of mass adoption of social media by businesses but the undisputed fact is that many have taken note of social media.

I am in the process of writing a post on ” The State of Social Media – 2010″ a recap of the year 2010 and the role social media has had in it. What has stood out for this year in your social media participation? What have you achieved? What are your memorable moments? Any special connections? What is your social media story? Lend me your thoughts as I draft a recap of 2010 before we head into 2011, what is being referred as the year of Social Business Integration.

I would appreciate your feedback in the comments section below and on Twitter as well using the hashtag #SocialMedia2010

Thank you in advance?

  • Discovering the (interesting stories that exist in) the blogosphere has marked 2010 for me. I came from believing ‘all blogs are boring’ & ‘who needs blogs unless they are researching for a thesis’ to discovering that there are many interesting blogs out there on all topics under the sun…

    Starting my own blog has brought me much joy too. http://mrsmwiti.com is like my third baby. 🙂

    The essence of social media has transformed how we communicate, how we think, how we fight battles. Its redefined the parameters of character and attitude. Its given chance to the weak and basically made the under dog top dog.

    This coming year is going to be very interesting, especially for us fully using the medium for business. Keep up the good work bro.

  • Looking forward to the article Marvin, I started writing articles recently based on the day today lives and I must say that social media in Kenya has changed the way people go on with their day today lives, you can hardly turn without hearing of individuals talk about twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace and other social networks and how their are using them. Clearly even business entities are finding ways of interacting with their target market through the social media,failure to do this results to reduced profit margins. Fast forward to next year, I expect lots of changes on the numbers that use social media, especially with 2012 only a year from then, more and more people will make use of social media.
