From many stories I had read on the past years, social media network, like facebook, hi5, and twitter, etc...... remains the effective way to influence others, and change the way businesses had done wrong to its customers. Like the recent story about an Indian student who just discovered that he has colon cancer while he was on his trip back to India. His insurance, Aetna only can pay for him $300,000 cap for chemotherapy and other doctor visits, which really make him aggrieve to find other money to keep on his therapy. After he posted his story, and telling others how the health system broken in our country, Aetna CEO agree to pay for every penny of his cancer treatment. I am not trying to tell you that, if you post anything on those social media network, you will get whatever you want. But if you see an unfair story that personally related to you, maybe social media network is one of the effective way to justified the wrong to right for you.

It's true. Social media network like Facebook is a very effective way in connecting people, so the logo says. I have made myself an image on facebook as a macho old man and in an fb group is well respected when in fact i can't hardly walk a short distance and as bodily active and adventurous as my FB friends think of me.

This is true kingparker. Having this new technology around, we can be able to communicate in different ways. There are many positive effects in using social networking sites, although there are also some negative points but generally, it gives us benefits more than the negative effects. We just have to be careful in dealing with other people. Personally, I could say that this is one of the greatest invention man has ever made.

this is a good story. thank you for sharing this. it is true that the social media has done many good things including this one. it can provide beautiful stories, love and successes. i hope those dominate the headlines and what people hear and read, rather those negative stories that make us disappointed and frustrated in this world.
