Dear Stanford colleagues,
We suggest starting to work on our final joint presentation, which will take place on May, 26. We would also like to suggest focusing in our presentation on the following questions: What image do Presidents Medvedev and Obama try to create for themselves through social media (twitter and facebook) and what tools do they use for this purpose?
More specifically, we can research:
1) what language or techniques they use to sound less formal and seem closer to ordinary people
2) how they (if at all) try to demonstrate their active engagement with the most topical problems
3) how they (if at all) try to seem modern
4) what other leadership qualities they demonstrate through their use of social media
We are going to focus on Medvedev.
Can we exchange our blog posts on this next Thursday just to see how it is all going?
If you have any questions or ideas, e-mail us.
