NUS students participated in a live television forum when CNM hosted the television talk show, Talking Point – The Vote on 6 November 2013.
The 45-minute forum added to the buzz on campus when the show host, Daniel Martin invited and moderated live phone-ins, polls, tweets and questions from the audience in the auditorium of AS7, on a concern for many youth in Singapore: Social Media: More Harm than Good?

The other panel members were Megan Fitzgerald, a career coach who specialized in using social media for personal branding and Silver Ang, a young celebrity blogger, who shared on managing privacy and dealing with the misrepresentation of one’s social media content.
Together with their undergraduate audience, the panel discussed the merits of social media, its drawbacks as well as using social media to brand oneself.
