Africa not open for social media

Shel Israel has published the findings from his SAP Global Survey. In Part 3, he reviews the world of social media by continents. Africa is the last one to be mentioned and has the smallest amount of comment. I was one of the Africa respondents of the survey.

I find it sad that my continent is still seen as the laggard in many areas of the technology and Internet space, despite the efforts of SA’s social media gurus, like Mike Stopforth.

  1. Heavens! A guru? I don’t know about that – but thanks for the kind mention nonetheless 🙂

    Great blog by the way. I share your sentiments and sadness regarding perceptions around our continent but I firmly believe 2008 is the year we’ll start to see this change.
