    Clay Shirky: How social media can make history

    He talked about media?s great change and what means this great change for the people who have a massage to announce all over the world. He explained changes with several short stories. First one was about voting. People had anxiety about voting that might be obstructed by other people. So they decided to picturize voting. The idea behind this was that people wanted to show they weren?t there just for voting, they were there for checking security.
    When people look at technological developments that occur in the last 500 years, there is a great rise so it is probably to say that is a revolution. There were 4 main developments during that period. First and the famous one were printing and press. Then it followed up with telegraph-telephone, photograph-films, and lastly radio-television.
    After internet enters into our world, it caused enormous changes. First it provided many to many communication. Thus, films, magazines and conversations moved into the Internet. In this way, people started to communicate with each other more easily.
    Another example that he gave during his speech was 7.9 largeness earthquake which happened in China. Even during the earthquake, news had already started to spread. People wrote massages and recorded all disaster with their cameras. Then they putted these reports on the internet. So people all over the world could be able to reach this information. Even BBC learned this disaster firstly in Twitter. Social media became so powerful in our life that they provide outocontrol over governments and organizations. For example, after earthquake in China people realized that the reason for collapsing many schools was not only earthquake but also government official?s permission about building schools without obeying rules.
    Finally, at the end of his speech he pointed out ?how people use the media for their benefits?

    Media started with printing press, after that conversation started with telegraph and later with telephone. Some times later recorded audio and video were existed and then providing audio or video via air or land. But you can do with all of these media only individual conversations or non-conversational news for groups.
    In the last decade this reality changed with internet. People can make group conversations on social sites like Facebook, Twitter and so on. Audiences have been providers in this conversation network. For example an earthquake has been occurred in China at 7.9 emphasis, and people focused conversation sites announced this disaster before QQ, which is Chinas internet news service. But in this conversation system it?s difficult to filtering contents of amateur media. China does it with Great Firewall of China.

    Clay Shirky talks about transformed media landscape by giving examples. The first example is about how communication is developed. Before internet people were communicating with devices such as telephone and TV. These were either one-to-one or one-to-many. This means there was only one idea that could reach one or many people. After internet lots of information spread all around the world. The lecturer carries on with another example which is about an earthquake occured in China. What was interesting is that it was shared on twitter during the earthquake. So because of the twits many people including BBC heard about it. This is how internet effected the transformation of media landscape.
