THE GLOBAL VILLAGE: POWER TO THE PEOPLE...
While chatting with my friend John last night, we discussed the benefits that Facebook has brought to this world. No matter what irritates us about our loss of privacy or suffering through thousands of inane posts about what somebody had for breakfast.. the truth is communication is POWER...
Before Facebook the people were able to just read stories and post comments (letters to the editor)..Now WE all can create news, organize groups and fight "city hall"...
One of my college professors taught me about Marshall McLuhan's Global Village that would one day be the state of this Earth. The internet gave us the tools and Mark Zuckerberg made communicating user friendly for all...to me the BEST is yet to come.
Yes the bad guys are using our advanced technology to further their dark agendas. But we need to stay focused on using these gifts to save this world. We all have the power within us to help.
I no longer feel hopeless about the state of affairs in my home town, state, country or planet. Power to the people has arrived... So thank you Mark Zuckerberg for uniting the generations online....xK
