Joining the Social Media Revolution

As the crisis and aftermath of Haiti continues, I’ve been incredibly moved by the power of the social web to mobilize, create a groundswell and drive real donations to help the people of Haiti.

The video above about the “social media revolution” further illustrates that point. As a person who creates social media campaigns professionally, I’m asked all the time if services like Twitter are going to last, where the online space is going next, and why invest in a technology now if it’s only going to change in 12-24 months. In response, I say look at what is happening NOW in response to Haiti. That’s power. That’s the social web standing up and taking charge and putting money where their mouth is.
