Responding during the session to questions, the president and founder of “Kosovich Media Group”Christopher Kosovich stressed that today there is an active commercialization of social media, and this – is a consequence of the growing volume of advertising. This situation complicates the conditions for creating unique content. Therefore, the basic information remains unaddressed. And if we talk about the developing trend of indiscriminate transfer of newspapers and magazines in electronic format, I do not see anything wrong. As newspaper readers reading the article denies an opportunity to express their views or to spread their views in writing. And when there is an online version of the newspaper , anyone can post their opinions as much as you like, distribute anywhere and write anything. I therefore fully support these changes – he said.

“I also support these changes, – said “SmartMope” mobile applications developer Kuanish Raiymbekov supporting the speaker. – Now every fourth rezident of the globe uses a mobile phone. And every second of them uses a smartphone. This suggests that the world is used 1.75 billion devices. And if to rely on the data of last year, about 1.6 million smartphone users live in Kazakhstan. Naturally, if this figure will not increase, it will not be reduced probably. Today about 2.4 million applications for mobile devices have already registered. The Internet develops, the online marketplaces expands every day. The figures that I announced today, will still grow rapidly. Because these devices are being introduced all the features that meet the new requirements of the times” – he stated.

Recall, the Summit of Journalism was organized as part of Astana Economic Forum. This year, the forum was held for the seventh time. Astana Economic Forum – is a vast dialogue platform that opens every year in the capital of Kazakhstan and intedns at discussion and finding solutions to the global financial and economic problems.
