This small world!
You write a sentence on a friend's wall, and it's back on your wall before 24 hours by another friend which doesn’t even know the first one!
This is what most excites me about social networking and is what exactly you need for leading or being a part of a movement.I mean this great pace of publishing news and thoughts.so when you want to start leading a movement, you just share your idea, create web pages, use different social media tools and if your idea is interesting enough it will become common.
Of course it needs to be smart to tell your issue,news or status which you want to publish it in interesting words so it will be shared in the first step.
For example it makes differences when you say “Oh,I must wear completely covering cloths here” or “Oh, I miss sunshine on my skin here” as a foreign tourist visiting a country like Iran.
It is not just about a short status sentence but about entitling articles too!
Yes It's this kind of media's feature that people follow and excite about very common subjects, specially when there are many people supporting something like a cause they excite about it, share more and more so this empowers that cause.there are many samples which this kind of people's participation in sharing and talking and thinking helps a movement to progress and cause happenings in the real world.very famous samples are recent movements in middle east countries.
I checked an info-graphic showing some statistics of Facebook,according to it's numbers there are approximately 1 in every 13 people on the earth having Facebook account, half of them logging in every day.Also It says in just 20 minutes there are about 1,000,000 links shared, 1,484,000 events invited and 2,760,000 massages sent, this great numbers most of all shows very powerful effect of this networks on people,it's kind of real life but in virtual place! And in real life we do aware people about our issues,when you do it online, the big difference is great pace,and being this global.
So yes, I use it like many members and it's powerful tools empower me to share my issues about women and other subjects with my community. I am hopeful about this media and it's effects with accepting problems.
