Johary Mustapha, CEO of Forest Interactive, was invited as honorary adviser of Malaysian Mobile Content Provider Association (MMCP) to approach the following subject: “Mobile Content Services: What do you need to know?”. He took this opportunity to talk about the evolution of mobile technology, social medias, OTT platforms, online communication and how to use it properly.

“Out of 7.5 billion population, 2.8 billion are using social media… it’s a huge communication tool. But be careful. You need to know how to understand and evaluate the information, and not only reading it and spreading it. Before uploading or sharing anything, think twice,” said Johary Mustapha, CEO of FOREST INTERACTIVE.
