Notre Dame University Bangladesh (NDUB), under the banner of NDUB Lockdown Fest 2020, held a webinar on content creation on social media during the pandemic on July 4.

The webinar started with the NDUB Vice-Chancellor Dr Fr Patrick Daniel Gaffney, CSC, welcoming everyone. He also encouraged the youth to engage in creative content making by acknowledging its potential.

The purpose of this session was to encourage the production of enlightening, optimistic, and entertaining content on social media in a time when more and more youths are depressed, especially due to the lockdowns.

The webinar discussed how such contents can contribute to the mental health of the youths of the country, read the press release. 

The first speaker Rafsan Sabab shared his journey of being an anchor and his content creating process. 

“Not one content creator has seen the light of success with only one content. It takes time to increase views on the content, which is a gradual process,” he said. 

“People might not believe in you at first, you have to keep making content and you will get better day by day,” Rafsan added.

He further said: “Having the mentality of ‘people will watch’ is not healthy to nurture as it might get one into depression. Rather, one should focus on sharing energy to the audience through their content.”

The second speaker Keto Bhai, who is known for his idiosyncratic approach, shared his journey, and talked about how he uses colloquial accent and individual style of performance which made his contents go viral on social media.

The panelists noted that one needs a creative idea and the courage to start it. 

The event ended with an interactive question-answer session. Keto Bhai performed two songs—Keto Happy Song and Bela Bose by Anjan Dutta.

Md Kamrul Islam, co-moderator of the university’s business club, and Ahmed Tahsin Shams, co-moderator of the English club, thanked the audience and expressed their gratitude to both the speakers.
