Davos, Switzerland, 25 January 2010 – The World Economic Forum is once again making full use of the major social media platforms at the upcoming Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland giving unprecedented access to the wider public. The general public can actively participate in a number of sessions through video submissions, blog comments, tweets and quick polls.

The Forum will also microblog in Chinese on Sina.com at http://t.sina.com.cn/davos. And finally, you can get all the feeds by subscribing to the Forum on FriendFeed http://friendfeed.com/worldeconomicforum.

Blogging
Key sessions will also be blogged on the Forum’s blog at http://www.forumblog.org. All blog posts about the Forum are aggregated in the Davos Conversation http://www.davosconversation.org on Netvibes. The programme of the Open Forum is on the blog at http://www.forumblog.org/openforum and you can send comments which the moderators will integrate in their respective panels.

Facebook
The Forum recently released a report on Faith in the Global Agenda based in large part on polls conducted on Facebook with over 130.000 respondents. In selected sessions in the Annual Meeting in Davos, we will once again tap into the collective wisdom of the onlinrowd through these “pulses” on Facebook. The pulses allow us to capture the opinion of several thousand Facebook users in a matter of minutes. Their views will be fed back into the panel discussion at specific sessions. If you are on Facebook why not become a fan of the Forum at http://facebook.com/worldeconomicforum.

MySpace
Sloane Berrent has won the MySpaceJournal competition organized by MySpace in partnership with the Wall Street Journal. The 30 year old from California will report from Davos for the global MySpace community. Watch her winning video entry below:

If you have a MySpace page why not befriend the World Economic Forum on MySpace http://www.myspace.com/worldeconomicforum. The Forum recently opened a network on Ning and will be cross posting some information there. If you are on LinkedIn, join the Annual Meeting group on LinkedIn.

YouTube
Julia Lalla-Maharajh is the winner of the Davos Debates 2010 on YouTube. Julia brings her cause, the fight against female genital mutilation, onto the agenda of the Annual Meeting where she will discuss the issue in a special session with Ann Veneman, Executive Director of UNICEF, New York, and Nicholas Kristof, New York Times columnist on Saturday 30 January from 15.30 to 16.45 (CET). You can participate in the session by submitting your question.

The World Economic Forum will explore the growing influence of social networks in a workshop on Wednesday 27 January from 09.00 to 11.00. The discussion is moderated by Loïc Le Meur, Founder of Seesmic and will include, among others, Gina Bianchini, Chief Executive Officer, Ning; George Colony, Chief Executive Officer, Forrester Research; Reid Hoffman, Founder, LinkedIn; Owen Van Natta, Chief Executive Officer, MySpace.com; and Evan Williams, Chief Executive Officer, Twitter. Given the topic of the workshop it was natural to open it to input from the different social networks and to hear from the general public on the question: “How are social networks are changing society?”

As in the past several years, YouTube has set up a video corner at the Congress Centre where we invite participants to answer your questions. Submit your question to world leaders at http://youtube.com/davos.

Live webcasts
All plenary sessions will be webcast on the website of the World Economic Forum and live-streamed on our Livestream channel. The videos will also be available in full HD quality from our website and can be watched on demand on the Forum’s YouTube channel. The webcast programme of the Annual Meeting 2010 is here.

All press conferences will also be live-streamed on Livestream allowing anyone online to field questions directly to the panellists through Twitter and Facebook.
