ALBA-TCP celebrates in Caracas First Digital Alba Meeting | News
The Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-People’s Trade Treaty (Alba-TCP) is holding the First Digital Alba Meeting in Caracas starting this Tuesday, an event that brings together representatives of 13 nations and aims to propose strategies for work in tune with the evolution of digital media.
How has Latin American and Caribbean unity been strengthened?
In Tuesday’s session, Venezuelan Vice President Freddy Ñáñez, also Minister of Communications, emphasized the need to “create a relevant content production laboratory for social networks.”
Taking as precepts those defended by Alba-TCP, the official from the South American country referred to the value that the training of influencers will have to promote the generation of avant-garde content.
“The training that we require in terms of the experiences that we have, that have been built in other countries, how to generate an instance for the exchange of experiences, how to generate an instance at the most detailed, technical, operational and also theoretical, philosophical level, because this it is a semiotic battle on the one hand, and on the other hand it is a concrete instrumental battle”, emphasized Ñáñez.
The minister called for reflection on the experiences of each Alba-TCP member regarding the educational offer to train influencers, “from the academic-training point of view to mediate and moderate the consumption of digital information, either through video games, informative or recreational”.
Ñáñez also exemplified how the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has formed, in addition to think tanks, social network operators “that are apparently harmless”, but work “to mobilize any social unrest, wake it up and direct it somewhere”.

In this sense, he pointed out that the differences in the algorithms of the formats of social networks should be considered, since “the production of content for Tiktok is not the same as the production of content for Instagram”, since in each one they write and design various codes.
The First Digital Alba Meeting will be held from this Tuesday in the Simón Bolívar room of the Ministry of People’s Power for Foreign Relations in the Venezuelan capital.
