Communication policy in the age of Facebook

I’ve been invited to deliver the chief guest’s address at International Conference on “India’s Communication Policy and Strategy,” at Manipal University, Karnataka, India, March 17-18, 2017.

The topic I picked is “Communication policy in the age of Facebook.” Here is what I think is the key para:

Though difficult, it is possible to develop a comprehensive, modern policy for the communication space through diligent consultation and the involvement of multiple agencies of government. But it would suffer from a fundamental instability. This is because the media (broadly defined) are no longer just a segment of the economy. They are at the core of the economy. It is difficult to define the bounds of communication policy, which keep shifting and expanding. This is the underlying cause of the operational difficulties.
