Blogopolis 2013: Into the Wild!

hey fellow bloggers and net freaks! something awesome is happening on november 16 (aside from my birthday of course! *yes kelangan naka-bold*) and you shouldn't dare miss it! this year, nuffnang brings an entirely new and equally exciting theme for their 2nd Blogopolis... see title above haha!

truly, the internet has grown so much from being a mere web of inter-connected networks into a complex jungle of information. thanks to the onslaught of social media platforms and to the increasing accessibility of the internet, the world wiiiiild web has become an entirely new planet of its own, with its people still struggling to make sense of the new territory.

but fear not my dear friends, that's what this year's blogopolis is all about! it will help us learn more about social media and how it impacts our daily lives. it will take us into an informative hike deep into this seemingly intimidating online wilderness. it will introduce us to the many different types of "animals" (animals talaga?) lurking in this unique wild! but eventually, we'll leave solid trails and emerge fully enlightened and motivated (not to mention, SAFE! haha) to take the lead, take advantage, and make the most out of this overpopulated social networking realm. naks.

and well, how do you go about into the wild without expert trail blazers to lead the way? nuffnang has got you covered! their line-up of speakers will definitely get you packing off to the wild, i mean, off to intercon hotel muna, then out to the real wild (i'm trying to be punny here!) haha.
