A Social Reporting Handbook was created in response to the growing trends and needs of E-participation during important global and regional policy forums: it provided useful guidance on what social reporting is, why it is needed, and how to report from the events. The international and regional policy forums are not only taking place inside conference centres, but also across the world via Internet tools such as remote participation and social media. It is important to help involve professionals to embrace social media tools in order to extend their personal and institutional capabilities to listen to a variety of other inputs, share their own contributions efficiently, and connect and discuss with others. The handbook was prepared for the occasion of the fifth global IGF that took place in Lithuania in autumn 2010.

Ambassador Nabil Fahmy on Diplomatic Reporting (Source: The Rise of Netpolitik by David Bollier)

In the late 1990s, when Ambassador Nabil Fahmy became Egyptian ambassador in the United States, he decided to change diplomatic reporting from his embassy. Although it was in the early days of the Internet, most of his reasoning about diplomatic reporting is as relevant today as it was more than decade ago.
