Social Media to live your dream
Well as I was listening to many young people talking about their dreams it reminded me of how many people are able to share and live their dreams using Social Media. The above video is a classic example of how a woman with a dream got more than what she bargained for when she entered a singing competition. The use of social media indicates the use of spreading a message and engaging with the masses. The above video achieved the following stats in a space of 6 weeks(source: Viral Video Cart):
81 duplicate videos 147,874,746 views 13,345 blog posts (+1 this post) 494,982 comments
Surely this is a good example of the power of sharing a message and joining the conversation using social media.
