A Social Experiment : Can Man Live on Social Media Alone?

Are you a self confessed social media junkie with an appetite for adventure? If so then the opportunity of a lifetime awaits you!

The London Social Media Week team have teamed up with our friends in Singapore to run a mini exchange trip in conjunction with Social Media Week.

The overall idea...one person, five days, Singapore. Uncover the power of social media and how it can be used for social good.

One lucky social media enthusiast will be flown to Singapore from the 8th – 13th of February 2012, equipped with nothing but a smart phone and the clothes on their back. Using social media only, they must rely on the public's goodwill to provide them with food, lodging, clothes and transport. All in an effort to answer the question, can man live on social media alone?

The adventure will end at each of the cities Social Media opening parties on the Monday night where each, lets call them "contestants" will take to the stage and talk about their journey.

This could be you. To get a chance to be involved in this one off experience all you need to do it submit a 60 second video demonstrating what social media means to you and why you think you should be picked for this social experiment. Email you videos to francescaatchinwag [dot] com by the 20th January 2012.

We will be picking the top 3 videos, which will be uploaded for public voting from the 23rd January. The public will then have a week to vote on who they think should win. During that week, contestants can do whatever they wish to try and get votes. The winner will be announced on 27th January.

We look forward to receiving your videos. Good luck!




Can some one confirm the closing date for entries please? It says the 20th of Jan but the public voting starts the 16th Jan!


Closing Date

Hiya Liam,

Thanks for the comment, we expanded the deadline for the videos, so the deadline is next Friday the 20th and the public voting will start the week after - sorry for the confusion we will change it now. Thanks for pointing that out.
