Social Media and World Revolutions Social Media
Twitter is HUGE. It seems that everyone has a Twitter handle; from politicians to CEOs, from industry movers and shakers to your neighbor Bob. One of the most prominent features of Twitter is the “hashtag” which have made it easy for people who are talking about the same things to see what you’re saying. This has of course been seen as a publicity opportunity by businesses and politicians, with many creating hashtags campaigns that promote their business, candidate or cause.
Protests around the world have been seen by an unprecedented number of people thanks to social media. This infographic created by the University of Southern California’s Public Administration Dept. (http://publicadmin.usc.edu) examines the way social media is helping people change the world.
