While we were all head down and working hard on the content of prevention, something subtle but significant happened -- the Web went social. It shifted from a search and read environment to participate and publish. The new Web has the ability to connect us and amplify the voices of positive change but only if we engage. Whether focused on a particular issue or a particular approach to prevention the Web now offers low- no-cost (and dare we say fun) applications. Reaching beyond information and dissemination, the new Web offers communication and collaboration platforms that opens conversations, provides for web-based collaboration, linking us together and raising the visibility of the social issues we care about. We will look more closely into three specific areas of social media -- social networks, blogs, and wikis. 7-K. SBIRT. JR Ayola. 7-L. Culture and its Influence on HIV/AIDS. Bob Settles, LCSW.
