The Grand Social Media Experiment. We learn by doing.

“New Agents of Change”

Leave a comment

Social media today allows for individuals to initiate change at grassroots level, again. Also, social media sites have provided a platform for our generation and other generations to come together on common ground. As technology has advanced so have ways of raising money and creating awareness to fit within the paradigm of social media.

We can raise money and awareness for a cause effectively and faster these days powered by social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Blogging, YouTube, and Tumblr. An example of one of those new agents of change that were featured in the Marie Claire magazine is Stefanie Gray, whose cause focused on reducing student loan debt, started a Tumblr called Occupy Student Debt, promoting her campaign on Twitter.

However, how effective your posts and blogs depends on the value of your information. Your information has to be consistent and pertinent to the subject or cause. Adding value to social media posts places worth on the blogger or organization. I have slowly been setting up a blog and pondering on what and what not to include. As I organize my blog, I have realized what information is important and what information is not, and what information is worth coming back to the site for. Value makes the blog or organization a success.
