Social Media is more than just a buzzword. It could be a passing fad just like some ‘experts’ speculate, or the next big wave (for those who don’t already feel it). I’m no expert neither do I enjoy speculating. However, as I write this piece for Blogadda, I’m sure that you, the reader, have moved to a point far ahead from the one where you exclaimed ‘aw3s0m3!’ (a geeky way to express that adrenaline rush on seeing a neat digital phenomena) looking at videos sharing social media statistics.
What probably started as a medium to rate women on campus has now evolved into a medium that allows you to communicate and meet them in addition to others. It allows you to market, converse, share and learn, manage customer relationship, overcome geographic constraints… and the list keeps on growing every day.

Citizens are putting their words into action and putting in all efforts to channelize their anger and pain into building a better, safer future for all of us.

The movie oscillates between the successful present and the happy past of ‘MAGIK’.
