Thursday Thanks – Social Networking

19/07/2012

I was talking to to friends about how a group started that has helped people impacted by the wildfires.  It began as a facebook conversation asking how to help, finding others on different groups and pages doing the same, and creating a facebook group then to connect everyone and mobilize efforts.  Suddenly we had hundreds of people connected and working towards one goal.  All of this in a couple of days!

For all of the concerns that come with social networking (and many are legitimate concerns), there has been so much good that has come of being connected in this way, instantly.  I am thankful for those who were skilled enough in technology to provide the rest of us the opportunity for a great network!
