Social Media has been a natural part of life in the Top End since long before the internet.
Does that surprise you?
‘Social Media’ simply refers to media produced and shared for social consumption.
So that means those long, sometimes dreary, slide show nights with family and friends, qualify as Social Media.
It also means those afternoons looking at photo albums with parents, friends, family, qualify as Social Media.
Notes on community noticeboards, pictures in your shop window of products or services being used, even showing off on your bike, in your ute, on your sewing machine to other people, qualifies as Social Media.
Bob Gosford even highlighted some Social Media in a recent Crikey article on defacing Intervention signs near Yuendumu.
