Sharing opportunities posted online with others can empower a community

The internet has many opportunities, "the question is" are we sharing it with many people ? The reason why social media "Facebook"s is big, is because people shared with others. I for instance joined in 2008 because friends were constantly sending invitation emails. If you have joined a social media, "I ask, how did you hear about it"?

A year ago, someone told me to follow a blog called "opportunities for Africans". The blog posts opportunities such as internships,events,scholarships,competitions and fellowships. This blog has given me the opportunity to attend training programs. It is also through this same blog that I first heard of the "women weave the web digital campaign". I joined World Pulse because someone shared an online opportunity with me.

The internet can give a voice to the voiceless. I'm an entrepreneur today because of the internet. Tell a friend, to tell a friend about an opportunity you found online ! Share your technical knowledge with others.
