December 21, 2012 | Duration: 14 min, 33 sec
On The Social Network today, we set out to discuss if the Mayan legend of Doomsday that became the dominant trend on the social media worldwide and united the consumers of news media more than what the political news headlines of the traditional media are able to achieve. And if that was the case, is it then just a matter of time when the traditional media would fall to disuse?

In the studio, we taste the reality and the urgency to report the issues at hand on priority.
