Blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube and other Social Media connect people and brake down cultural, religious and other barriers. Surveys also tell that people active in Social Media are more socially active face to face too. OsloBG and the Oslo Blog Gathering 2010 in Norway is an excellent proof of that and its happening this week:
OsloBG is a three day program to explore Oslo and Norway’s culture, traditions and habits. Associates like VisitOslo give the Oslo Pass to all participants which allows free access to sightseeing attractions as well as public transportation. That gives everyone a free choice of how to experience our compact city offering everything from the Fjord, the mountains and wild life as well as pulsating urban adventures.

OsloBG in Social Media:
The gathering is first of all a social gathering for people from all over the world who love to meet up and share magic moments while exploring Oslo. Some might blog about it live (like me, so stay tuned!) and some will share our adventures on other social media. I have a Nokia X6, excellent for uploading and sharing on all platforms, so check out my photos and reports on Facebook, Twitter and/or Flickr as well! If you are lucky, you might get a glimpse of us and our adventures live at my Qik-site too from where I can broadcast real time, on line!
