You’ve now come to know of Mobile Monday as a frequent monthly event in which serious topics are discussed in a not so serious way. But we really like to switch it up as often as we can: next week, you’ll get to hear a surprise collection of speakers at our Open Mic Mobile Monday. Last month, we ran amok, or so we thought, with our Facebook Groupie Photo Challenge.
We tried to, anyway. The idea was for participants at Mobile Monday to get together to make a groupie photo, to be posted on Facebook so that we could pick a winner.
We learned from the low response that even in a space predominantly filled with tech and entrepreneur types, internet connectivity and access to devices is something to be reckoned with — what more for the mainstream Myanmar market. Despite several connectivity channels, it was still too much to expect real-time interaction the way you would elsewhere.
That’s actually why events like Mobile Monday come into play: with fewer than 7% of the population represented online percent, the only way to go is up, especially with all the upcoming infrastructural developments.
We’ll try again in a couple of months and compare the results then. See you at the next Mobile Monday! Remember to RSVP!
