Newstalk technology correspondent Jess Kelly brought the Republic of Ireland centre up to date with the latest thinking on social media at an event held at RTÉ, Dublin, in late July.
Kelly, who covers technology both on air and online for the Independent Irish radio station, said that social media, while you “might not agree with what it has to say, never sleeps and is always engaging”.
She went on to outline what the multitude of different social media, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat, has to offer in TV and radio. As with many things in life, she added, posts offer “the good, the bad and the ugly”.
Kelly told the centre that while she was not the smartest kid in school, she was the one who digitised the school library. She was recognised as being good at explaining complex technical matters, which has become her way of making a living.
