Twitter, TV, and Tusker Project Fame; a Transmedia Experience

Twitter in Kenya is very active. For a long time now, the activities of Kenyans on Twitter usually increase or decrease in frequency depending on the popular activity for that day.

Social Media, Telling Stories and Sharing Experiences

Source: MyExtraLife Whenever you hear about social media, phrases like “shared experiences” are usually around the corner.

Facebook Fanpages over Groups: Kenya

Prologue: The Kenyan Facebook scene is notorious for Groups and not Fanpages. @Wamathai asked me on Twitter which between a Facebook Fanpage and a Group is better.
