#24: The Bright Side of Social Media
Facebook gets a really bad rap these days, and let’s be real, a lot of it is very well deserved. Spreading misinformation, Russian bots, your cousin sharing way too many photos of her kids—it’s all on Facebook and it’s all pretty dire. But if you try, you can find ways to use Facebook for a good cause.
That’s what this person did, leveraging the power Facebook has to reach many people to create a page where people could say nice things about each other. I love that even though he says that he felt powerless at that time, he found a way to use what resources he had access to in a creative way to make a difference. It reminds us that we all have the ability to do the same.
