PETALING JAYA: Social media is not only changing consumer-business relationships but also citizen-government ties.

In recent months, more politicians and public sector agencies in Malaysia are embracing social technologies.

The promises and challenges of social media will be discussed this evening at the Social Media Club KL Meeting. Tickets to the event have all been snapped up.

Taking place at 7pm, at the Star Auditorium in Menara Star (15 Jalan 16/11, Section 16, PJ), the discussion will delve into mindset shifts, as well as the re-engineering of government machinery to embrace the social web for more rakyat-centric, high-performance governance.

Hosted by Packet One Networks (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, a WiMAX wireless broadband provider, the topic of the discussion is The Government 2.0 — Government in the age of Social Media.

The speakers are Khairy Jamaluddin, Member of Parliament and Umno Youth chief; Tina Malone, press attaché at the US Embassy in Kuala Lumpur; and Kam Raslan, writer and film director. A. Asohan, Digital News Editor at The Star, will moderate the session.

In.Tech will be tweeting the highlights of the discussion, so follows us on at
