Jacki Buros is the Senior Data Scientist at Random House. She is an academically published researcher with over 10 years of analytical experience in genomics and clinical research. In this video, she talks about the effectiveness of social and digital media in developing countries like Afghanistan. She believes that one of the biggest values of social media as a global industry is to involve people and communities together. She adds that the most important thing about social media is that it enables an organic conversation where the most valuable ideas can rise to the top and influence the whole discussion. For each niche, there is an online community for people to connect with each other. She believes that there are many opportunities online for women to start working from remote places by writing blogs, and communicate.
