How Social Media Sparked a Revolution

| Posted by Liza Fromkes on February 21st, 2011 at 12:00 pm

The statement "there's power in numbers" could not be more relevant when realizing the power of Social Media.  Unless you have been living under a rock, you are well aware that President Mubarak has now stepped down from office in Egypt.  Are you also aware that the entire event was sparked by the creation of Facebook groups and Tweets? When Egyptian cable could not broadcast President Mubarak’s resignation speech, how was it communicated to the rest of the world? YouTube! Social Media has had such a powerful impact on the world, that one father in Egypt even named his daughter "Facebook" to commemorate the event, as seen in the link below:

Now more than ever, Social Media has become an integral part of our everyday lives. It allows us to communicate our messages, triumphs, frustrations, likes and photographs to as many people as possible at once. It even allows us to organize and inform people in numbers to make history like never before. So get on board people, this revolutionary train has left the station!

Spending a nominal amount of time on Social Media today could mean huge gains for your business tomorrow.  However, for many, the term Social Media can seem very vague or appears too time consuming to utilize.
