Social Media and Public Participation in IA - Discussion

 

 

Need to use traditional approaches because in Afghanistan and Iran, where people are illiterate and there is a digital divide that social media can't be used.

 

How can we filter and analyse and compare data sets given how much there is?

How can we ensure the legitimacy of the system? What governance systems a needed?

Do we need to work with stakeholders to ensure

 

Can we use a photo website as a way of monitoring environmental change during construction and operation?

 

Are people really expressing their own opinion or feeling lonely and wanting to be part of a group, want to make friends, etc.?

  • People can get a link to petition on a issue from a friend and they can just added their name without reading the petition because that friends 'knows me'.
 

Can be a means of seeking out stakeholders and finding people who are affected.
