Social Media Influence on Activism and Revolutions in the World Stage
The world has realized major changes as a result of the development and increased usage of social media networks such as facebook, myspace, and twitter among others. These networks have basically had a major role in fostering better interaction and communication prospects among different groups of people hereby revolutionizing people relations across the world. The sharing of information has virtually become much easier during this era of increased social media networks usage. As a result of social media networks, people across different parts of the world are able to get a grasp of any new developments and events quite easily by getting into social media network sites such as twitter and Facebook. “The ability of social media to quickly connect one person to the world, however, makes it easier for invested people to create change without a bureaucracy to back them up” (Kessler 1).
