This is the reason why social media is so powerful.
Everyone has a hunger, a need to experience cool things, and share it with others. It’s why we tell tales of the fantastic by the campfire. It’s why we have gods and mythology. A shared experience of wonder, awe, or even terror brings us all closer together.
Under any other circumstance, I probably would’ve never seen the performance above. Thanks to social media, this video was uploaded and shared a number of times before it landed in any of my feeds, and I just so happen to see it and click ‘play’. I never would’ve given Mariusz Goli the applause he deserved. Through social media, I made a connection, no matter how brief or fleeting, immediately, with someone from the opposite side of the world.
The internet has truly made the world a stage. Everyone is connected. Everyone watches and waits for the next performance to behold. If one is worthy of applause, they will be seen and shared with everyone. Isn’t that the point of life?
