The power of social media is almost endless. When it comes to Mexico, Facebook (and Twitter) have served as unique platforms that allow us to talk about the country we love, and to share news and opinions. The Mexico Today program has now taken social media to a new level with its “Social Magazine.”
The recently launched Mexico Today Social Magazine is an innovative tactic that pushes the envelope of what is possible on Facebook. This multi-phase project leverages community participation from fans to produce an evolving online publication. The stories and submissions come from leading Mexico bloggers and influencers, including the 24 Mexico Today Ambassadors. The Ambassadors’ contributions are divided into 6 topics: Economy, Health, Infrastructure, Security, Sustainability, and Travel and Culture.
In addition, the Magazine invites viewers to post their own Mexico stories. The intent is to create a grassroots movement by allowing submissions from those who are interested in sharing their Mexico experiences. There are two easy ways to be part of Mexico Today’s Social Magazine: 1) Write what you know – submit an original post featuring your tips, to-dos and cool happenings in Mexico. 2) Share an interesting link about Mexico that you discovered online.
We need your help to shape the conversation about today’s Mexico. The Magazine accepts not only short links, but also longer blog posts. Submit your content today to enter a chance to win a $500 gift card.
Future phases of the Magazine will use the same article database to power an iPad App version. Click here to check out the magazine: Mexico Today Social Magazine on Facebook.
