What does this video have to do with Public Diplomacy 2.0?

Posted by Wandren PD

The run-in to the Christmas break has seen the production of numerous pieces about Gov 2.0 and PD 2.0. As comments on them have got a little long I’ve attached them here rather than have an overly long blog post.

Many of these have been hot on the potential of ‘new’ tools but less clear on what they think the  ‘network’ in social networks might mean and how this would influence the development of strategy. If PD 2.0 is to make serious progress attention will have to be given to understanding the networks with which PD engages, not just the tools through which that engagement takes place.

What does this video have to do with it? It is based on understanding what is likely to influence behaviour, rather than just the tools.

Ultimately, understanding different types of networks with which PD 2.0 will engage is an important part of developing strategy and understanding what does ‘many to many’ mean?

  1. Ali,

    The video is a wonderful example of the power of attraction. Thank you for yet another great visualization of the concepts at play in public diplomacy. I’ve been following your work since my good friend Bruce Gregory signaled it out to me. I have learned much as a result of reading you and look forward to the publication of your book which I understand in in the works.

    I’ve reflected on some of your ideas on my own new blog, Winnowing Fan. You make me think and for that I am ever grateful. Happy New Year.
