Digital and new media are changing the landscape of communications. Alone, I do not know how we can change the world, but I’m confident that together we can use social media as a tool for fostering a revolution.
The protestors currently occupying Wall Street and other parts of the world seem radical because they’re not protesting one specific issue or picketing one specific law; instead, they’re calling for a dramatic revaluation of the way we organize ourselves as a society.
We now have the tools to coordinate and communicate with one another more effectively. Social networks like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube have played an instrumental role in the political uprisings across the world. Let’s use the hashtag #SocialMedia4SocialChange to get the conversation started.
