Footstep: #2

Does Social Media Matter?

Today for us it seems to revolve around Social media. With Facebook At 1 Billion
, the average user age is 22years and the average time spent is 3+ Hours Per Day For The Average American User  and Twitter has 1/2 billion accounts and massive daily activities and huge chucks of our time. 

Does it make a difference?

For some of us, the answer is YES, it does. For everyone else, it should. 


Twitter gives you the ability to connect with those you admire. Celebrities, tech icons, politicians and other giants of industries are at your reach for a conversation. I have had numerous conversations with Donald Trump and others, and I can say to do that in person it'll be 5000 times harder. Having a conversation with the people you admire, being follow by hundreds, even thousands of people, followed by award winning authors and luxury brands gives you a whopping boost of confidence .
So if you haven connected with those that you admire, don't waste time, you won't regret it.


Connect with strangers, build a relationship and become long-distance friends. If you lived 15 miles outside of town, without a car, what should you do?. Just do what Oliver Babcock did, he went online and not only did he meet people but he also got featured in an article in the May 2013 issue of Wired magazine. Always be connected to those you know. Send a nice message or pics, that you took yesterday, to your family and friends who live in another street,city or country at the other end of the world. Never miss a birthday or anniversary again and with the click of a button, send a gift and a card.

Viva la rivoluzione

Organize, revolt and topple the powers that oppose our human rights. When social media spills off the internet into the physical world, something all-consuming, unstoppable is created. A wave beyond the power of organization and government control is unleashed and they have one choice: Change, or be removed. Using social media to protest has allowed the world to stand together, because the problems of the world are for it's inhabitants to solve.
