The Steam: A social media community on Al Jazeera TV Ch.

Posted by jabbar Alshuwaili on May 19, 2011

Yesterday I attended the Inaugural Al Jazeera U.S. Forum held in the Newseum in D.C.; it brought key figures from the worlds of American and international media and politics to examine the unique challenges confronting  journalism worldwide in light of ongoing historic events in the Middle East , the United States and beyond. Triggered by these events, the power of ‘new’ and traditional media are interacting in ways that are helping to reshape the world.   

The Forum highlighted “The Stream” which is a live TV show online, it was a part of Al Jazeera Forum; anyone could tweet his questions live.

It taps the extraordinary potential of social media to give a platform to unheard voices from round the world.
