Blogapalooza and Project Headshot Clinic team up for #ResponsibleMedia
The role of media as a primary vehicle in influencing public opinion and dynamics is recognizably significant. Millennials, with the upper hand in the potent forces of technology and social media, have the capacity to utilize these forcesin a manner that is fast and wide-reaching, maximizing impact. With the many challenging issues that society faces each day, social media empowers every individual to be an instrument of change with just a few taps and clicks. Every person has the power to make things trend and be discussed to a greater extent.This power entails the social responsibility of being agents of change and putting to good use the power to influence.
With this, Blogapalooza, together with Project Headshot Clinic, spearheads an online campaign called #ResponsibleMedia, a social media advocacy movement designed to promote a smarter and wiser media landscape, where important issues are encouraged to be discussed openly and objectively. The objective of this movement is to open discussions about imperative issues involving the interest of the general public. The vision is for consumers and creators of content to talk about the country’s most pressing and most relevant issues in a richer and more profound manner, enabling the emergence of a wiser and smarter public that cares and is knowledgeable about the significant forces that drive the country’s swings and sways.
Responsible media is objective and not askew, allowing for different perspectives to be represented. It is proactive and responsive to the call for relevance and integrity of content. It promotes love for country, care for countrymen, trustworthiness in creation and sharing of content, and ethical media practice.
#ResponsibleMedia aims to make it highly personal for all its supporters.Advocates are encouragedto share news and create content relevant to them in their own respective fields – be it in fashion, beauty, sports, showbiz, music, art, travel, food, technology, even personal relationships or personal experiences. Advocates and supporters can create and share content that is relevant in their field of interest, keeping the integrity of the social media advocacy. The goal is to keep the content angled in such a way that media as a catalyst for change is highlighted.
#ResponsibleMedia aims to pave the way for the social media generation to beissue champions – instrumental to how the public perceives issues. The movement will pave the way for a Filipino populace that is well-informed and keeps an eye on matters of concern.
John Robert Powers supports the campaign #ResponsibleMedia
John Robert Powers has always been an institution that instills excellence, empowers individuals, and enhances people’s potential. It has been a bridge to ignite people’s passion, embrace their individuality, and mold them to be social influencers and catalysts of change. Through social media, the millenials, Gen Z and yuppies – a generation perceived as self-absorbed, indifferent, restless, and entitled because they are hyper-connected and highly-accessible can definitely break these labels. They can turn the game into a contributive act by maximizing the medium to speak of sensible opinions and by utilizing this avenue to begin a valuable discourse in sharing relevant issues; one trend and one hashtag at a time. #jrptowardsresponsiblemedia
