With time, I have used my blog to support causes I believe in. I guess that that show the reach of social media and how you can communicate and advocate for certain groups.
I have also learned that like in any other social environment there are topics that if addressed need to be done with the highest respect. Yes, I try not to talk about politics, although sometimes some topics require to be passionate about them.
I have been passionate about nutrition, healthy staff and No GMOs because I want a healthy family. When you read my posts, you either agree or disagree. But I and you get to express our opinion on the topic and we handle things we respect. Yes, we are using social media for a cause. If you ask me what was the best take away from Latism 2013 it was that: Use social media for a cause. Use your voice, be heard.
For 2 days we heard from different professionals about education, health, immigration and technology. I am very impressed with the quality of the presenters at the talks I attended. Their qualifications and knowledge were great and I learned a lot.
As on other conferences it is sad I have to choose sessions to attend (some other sessions took place at the same time). So I can only tell you about a few panels and workshops, but the feedback I got from my friends was similar.
I have to thank the sponsors that made it happen. I am looking forward to attend Latism 2014.
