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

:00:28.:00:32.

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

:00:32.:00:37.

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

:00:37.:00:42.

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

:00:42.:00:48.

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

:00:48.:00:57.

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

:00:57.:01:02.

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

:01:02.:01:07.

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

:01:07.:01:12.

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

:01:12.:01:22.
:01:22.:01:23.

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

:01:23.:01:29.

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

:01:29.:01:34.

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

:01:35.:01:39.

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

:01:39.:01:43.

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

:01:44.:01:53.
:01:54.:01:58.

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

:01:58.:02:01.

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

:02:01.:02:07.

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

:02:07.:02:14.

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

:02:14.:02:21.

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

:02:21.:02:24.

minutes given to each panel to inspire those watching book with

:02:24.:02:34.

ideas for action. Others ask questions through Facebook or

:02:34.:02:40.

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

:02:40.:02:45.

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

:02:45.:02:49.

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

:02:49.:02:53.

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

:02:53.:02:57.

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

:02:57.:03:02.

conversation online. Even the UN Secretary General had a video

:03:02.:03:12.
:03:12.:03:17.

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

:03:17.:03:23.

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

:03:23.:03:29.

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

:03:29.:03:33.

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

:03:33.:03:37.

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

:03:37.:03:45.

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

:03:45.:03:51.

generation before. Inside, corporate leaders were invited to

:03:51.:03:55.

join the conversation. Sir Richard Branson and meeting that big

:03:55.:03:59.

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

:03:59.:04:04.

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

up a school in the Amazon. They switched up wi-fi in one of Rio's

:04:15.:04:22.

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

:04:22.:04:27.

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

:04:27.:04:32.

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

:04:32.:04:35.

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

:04:35.:04:41.

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

:04:42.:04:46.

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

:04:46.:04:56.
:04:56.:04:57.

to find a similar schemes elsewhere. -- to find. Back in the conference

:04:57.:05:03.

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

:05:03.:05:08.

Park. There was word that they had made a new music video especially

:05:08.:05:18.
:05:18.:05:18.

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

:05:18.:05:23.

project to bring sustainable energy to Africa, encouragingly the was

:05:23.:05:33.
:05:33.:05:34.

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

:05:34.:05:39.

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

:05:39.:05:43.

social networks may mean louder voices and direct action, but

:05:43.:05:50.

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

:05:50.:05:56.

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

:05:56.:06:02.

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

:06:02.:06:07.

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

:06:07.:06:12.

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

:06:12.:06:19.

lot of things. The ability to change things through social

:06:20.:06:27.

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

:06:27.:06:33.

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

:06:33.:06:39.

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

:06:39.:06:46.

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

:06:46.:06:52.

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

:06:52.:06:58.

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

:06:58.:07:05.

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

:07:05.:07:11.

bed shaping online chatter. We are gathering interesting people around

:07:11.:07:20.

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

:07:20.:07:29.

emphasise the importance of hashtags. There are 250 million

:07:29.:07:33.

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

:07:33.:07:43.

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

:07:43.:07:53.
:07:53.:08:16.

:08:31.:08:31.

:08:31.:08:34.

Today, a phrase book, Revolution and technology, social media, each

:08:34.:08:41.

of us, each of you watching this, as a megaphone, that carries an

:08:41.:08:46.

connects our voices in every part of the world. But given that

:08:46.:08:50.

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

:08:50.:08:57.

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

:08:57.:09:01.

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

:09:01.:09:07.

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

:09:07.:09:15.

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

:09:15.:09:18.

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

:09:18.:09:25.

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

:09:25.:09:29.

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

:09:29.:09:39.
:09:39.:09:42.

the sea. He raises a good point. To think

:09:42.:09:47.

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

:09:47.:09:52.

it a danger that they end up driving the agenda?

:09:52.:09:57.

A look at this week's technology in use.

:09:57.:10:02.

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

:10:02.:10:10.

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

:10:11.:10:16.

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

:10:16.:10:21.

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

:10:21.:10:31.
:10:31.:10:33.

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

:10:33.:10:39.

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

:10:39.:10:42.

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

:10:42.:10:50.

with added security for the corporate world. It now joins

:10:50.:10:55.

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

:10:55.:11:00.

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

:11:00.:11:04.

members' profiles, replacing the original email addresses with the

:11:04.:11:08.

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

:11:08.:11:18.
:11:18.:11:20.

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

:11:20.:11:29.

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

:11:29.:11:33.

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

:11:33.:11:38.

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

:11:38.:11:45.

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

:11:45.:11:50.

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

:11:51.:11:55.

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

:11:55.:12:02.

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

:12:03.:12:07.

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

:12:07.:12:12.

jelly bean, and incremental update to its existing Android operating

:12:12.:12:17.

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

:12:17.:12:22.

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

:12:22.:12:32.
:12:32.:12:32.

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

:12:32.:12:36.

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

:12:36.:12:43.

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

:12:44.:12:52.

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

:12:52.:12:57.

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

:12:57.:13:02.

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

:13:02.:13:07.

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

:13:07.:13:13.

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

:13:13.:13:20.

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

:13:20.:13:30.
:13:30.:13:33.

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

:13:33.:13:39.

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

:13:39.:13:44.

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

:13:44.:13:54.
:13:54.:13:56.

to giving you the weather forecast. One of the main reasons Google is

:13:56.:14:01.

pushing these tablets so hard is to be remote its integrated on lines
