Hromi: “Give me one reason why I should register on Facebook.” After short presentation of specific features of social media and nets there will be moderated discussion between Daniel Hromada (Hromi) who has a very skeptical attitude against Facebook and Pavel Neumann, an expert on social media, who represents a defender of current social phenomenon. Hromi is a creator of legendary social network Kyberia.sk that has connected nonconformistly thinking people, from hackers to artists, already for several years. The author’s reserved attitude to the social nets is mainly related to the last developmental version of Kyberia - 2.3 that was not successful in its efforts to state a certain new model of the Internet democracy. On the contrary, Hromi´s opponent, Pavel Neuman, who dedicates himself to these trends on web and whose texts are presented on the blog BuzzMag, he considers this kind of closed society pseudo-activism. “One of the significant features (of web 2.0 services) is that their utility value does not grow with the number of users hence it is not possible to compare Kyberia with Facebook“, Neuman says. This moderated discussion will be held within the festival Multiplace. The bloc of lectures at 18:00 will be opened by Michal Cáb and the theme will be Fluxus/pd/livecoding. Palo Fabuš will follow and he will clarify us his theme in his lecture Me, We and They: Communication and Liability in Today’s society.
