Communication and information: so different one from the other

Leave a comment

Some days ago I found this very interesting video of Alfonso Gumucio Dragon who explains the difference between communication and journalism (or information management). Alfonso wrote a very useful book: Making waves. Stories of Participatory Communication for Social Change, collecting innovative communication for social change projects.

When doing the Internet, it is so important to understand this difference to be able to fully exploit the potentialities of the Net.

Passionate about social media, development projects and the world. Currently, I’m supporting the Emergency Division of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations in managing its online communication through the website, the social media and the mobile apps.
