So you want to change the world? Could this be the new way to do it?


This week, Click heads to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil to find that its


social networks can help save the planet. We take a fresh look at


Google's very own tablet, the big game titles of the summer are


reviewed, and we had some top tips to keeping contacts even if you


have lost your phone. We love a bit of social networking.


The occasional tweet, all liking of a friend's post, has become part of


everyday life. We also know that these platforms can help to change


things, whether it is opposition to close down an ad campaign, or the


rallying of people to topple -- topple a regime. The latest issue


is sustainability. We went to Rio de Janeiro to see if been so sure


could help save the planet. -- being so sure.


This is one way to get your message across to the politicians,


attending the Rio+20 summit. Or you could do it in true Copacabana


style. But the beaches are not just a place to play volleyball. They


are a place where people come to during lunch time, or at the end of


the day, to have a chat. People from all different social


backgrounds. For one day, the rest of the world is invited as well.


This is where Rio got so sure. Inside, a debate, we just a few


minutes given to each panel to inspire those watching book with


ideas for action. Others ask questions through Facebook or


Twitter. Governments come together to try to come to some agreement


about what they are going to do about global climate change and


sustainability. The promises are made and they are not kept. We hope


this will start people connecting online, they will form groups, they


will form hashtags, and they will start connecting and having a


conversation online. Even the UN Secretary General had a video


message recognising the power of social networks. Now, people around


the world came connect like never before. We are trending globally.


People around the world are taking part in this conversation. We are


live streaming in three languages. It is not just a bigger


conversation, we do not measure it in numbers, it is better


conversation. The tools we have now are so much more powerful than a


generation before. Inside, corporate leaders were invited to


join the conversation. Sir Richard Branson and meeting that big


business had to listen to what its customers thought, as well as what


they wanted to buy. In the spirit of digital inclusion, Ericsson been

huge slum areas. The gap between the haves and have-nots is more


stark in Rio than in most cities around the world. There are fears


that the gap is widening. But while many people are happy to call this


place home, they did not actually want to leave, they do want to be


heard. Introducing wi-fi he will help educate the next generation,


allow residents to have their say, and to persuade local politicians

hall, a light stream was buzzing with comments about band Linkin

for the event. They will also video link to the event, to talk about a

online to take action personally. - - the viewers. This is something


that is easy to do, it is a matter of spreading the word. The power of


social networks may mean louder voices and direct action, but


should our politicians follow the crowd? It is not about politics


getting wrong, it is to see how we can solve the problems jointly. It


is a huge opportunity. But people need to understand that online it


is speedy, it is easy to say something, but politics takes time.


There may sometimes be a conflict. The social media is speeding up a


lot of things. The ability to change things through social


networks was perhaps most prominent in the Arab Spring uprising. Was


this an attempt to mobilise the social networks again? If it was,


the Co organiser Pete Cashmore were shy to say so. It is not top down,


it is a bottom up system. It is not about saying, these are the issues


you must talk about, it is about saying, what are the issues that


are important in your community? You are focusing the conversation?


We are starting it. Those inside see more open to the idea of the


bed shaping online chatter. We are gathering interesting people around


relevant themes. I think you have to organise. That is why they


emphasise the importance of hashtags. There are 250 million


tweets a day. It is overwhelming. You have to find a signal through


the noise. 20 years ago, at the a regional summit, a 12-year-old girl


spoke passionately about what was Her words, 20 years later, this

everybody now has a megaphone, I asked the gel who may change the


world, whether we may all simply end up defend. We have to take


responsibility. We cannot allow the ease of communication to allow was


to write everything we want without thinking about it. There is a real


risk about that. Will it make a difference? Reactions were mixed.


It is doubtful whether the like button will replace the ballot box,


but if this event does not make an impact overnight, no-one is too


worried. There will be many more of them to come, plenty more fish in


the sea. He raises a good point. To think


that social media campaigns should be led by high-profile figures? Is


it a danger that they end up driving the agenda?


A look at this week's technology in use.


Google has shown off some of its new hardware. It has unveiled its


very own tablet, to rival Amazon's Kindle Fire. The Nexus 7 is linked


to a personal assistant feature to take on Apple's Siri. It is called


Google Now. We also got a closer look at Google's augmented reality


glasses. Developers get to play with them next year. Microsoft has


pledged more than $1 billion on the social networking site Yamal. It


has 5 million users and is a cross between Facebook and Twitter, but


with added security for the corporate world. It now joins


Microsoft's office division, which suggests it could be integrated


into future office products. Facebook has had a poke around its


members' profiles, replacing the original email addresses with the


one provided to users on its own systems. It is thought to be aimed


at increasing traffic on its page. It has angered many users.


As promised, more on the tie-up between Google. Richard Taylor is


one of the first people to get its hands on the new device. This is


the Nexus 7. Have do Google offered us a device of deliberative


proportions, or a slice of black magic? The hardware, it feels


pleasant to hold, slim and lighter. With a bright responsive and


toughened glass screen. On the outside and, it had a power was


which, a fall pin connector. -- power switch. But it is the insides


that mark this out from the crowd. It is the first device to sport a


jelly bean, and incremental update to its existing Android operating


system. The emphasis is on smooth and navigation, and with the quad-


core and video processing, it feels very much the case. Movie playback


is smooth and gaming should be a better experience. The 1.2 mega


pixel camera is a bit low resolution, but useful for video


conferencing. Under $200 for the eight gigabyte version, it may


attract a different market to the iPad. The most obvious comparison


that is being made is with this thing, the Kindle Fire. Amazon have


had this out for a while in America, odd though it has not shipped to


other places. I have to say that the Nexus 7 comes the fire in every


regard. Its resolution is better, it has got a fundraising camera, it


has got Bluetooth. -- front facing camera. It is a far bigger piece of


technology. -- better. It has got NFC. Apple finally has


some serious competition. It is in the form of Google's artificial


intelligence for his assistant. It can find you a local curry house,

Madden smart phones have a back-up option and you would be silly not

There is a reversion to try. If you want is a poor love your contacts,


you one need to upgrade to the Pro version. The thing about a back-up


is that you did on my seat until you really need it. By then, it is


often too late. Using all lock your contacts could be a major pain in


the handset. This is a quick and easy remedy to that. The
