Yep, things are changing

Facebook has had a tremendous affect on society.
  • Most people now talk online more than they talk to people in real life.
  • More and more people are getting their news and information from Facebook.
Facebook (and social media) are playing a role in revolutions, in politics, in the ability to solicit fast and quick reactions and responses from a large number of people.

This ability to garner such a large force of individuals and direct their attention and outrage (or support) in just a matter of minutes is a force to be reckoned with.  It will not be tamed.  The genie is out of the bottle.

This power will continue to play a major part in our lives and continue to shape who we as a society are becoming.
