Inspiring And Enabling People
To Make A Difference
This great diagram illustrates the speed with which social networks are growing. It includes almost 30% more sites than the last image I saw just a few months ago.
What’s great about this is the opportunity for individuals to connect and collaborate on projects dear to their heart with people in their community, in their country or indeed anywhere in the world.
Just this morning, I have had three conversations with people to move my projects forward:
- One of the individuals I have now worked with for 6 months and never met
- One lives in Australia
- The last one I have only just met and discovered that our visions overlap considerably.
Yes, there are a myriad of social media sites and tools out there; yes, it can be confusing; yes, there are many users of these sites that aggravate and annoy people and yes, it is sometimes hard to distinguish the good stuff from the noise however anything that brings people together, facilitates conversation and erodes the notion that there are insurmountable differences between human beings has got to be good for us all.
