I felt that we have been questioning how our use of social media like Facebook and Tumblr have affected our surroundings. I believe that is such an important question in our day and age where the use of the Internet is almost impossible to avoid. However, I think the question of if and how we employ social media to make the world a better place is crucial. In a world with perpetual disaster all around the world, I believe it is the hands of our society and especially our generation to do the most we can to aid those less fortunate around us. I think besides using social media to connect with new/old/current friends or produce an online identity, we should use social media to spread the word about causes we believe in. Wether we are avid supporters or protestors of a cause, we are given the open road to share these ideas on the Internet. You know what they say about content that is published on the Internet…it never truly disappears. So why not take a chance and publish something like a charity you support or an online petition on your social media page? Why not take the ability to spread the word, even if its to a couple friends about what you believe in? A constant concern of the Internet is that so many people abuse it in numerous negative ways. But if we truly consider the favorable aspect of the Internet, our generation could begin to start a revolution for the positive employment of the Internet (which I believe is slowly, but surely starting).
