Sure, social media may be “just a tool”. A communications tool. An organizing tool. A truth-exposing tool. A can’t-be-ignored tool. A global tool. A peaceful tool. An accessible tool. A barrier-breaking tool. It’s many tools in one, it’s even a floor wax. The point is: social media is being used for good, doing good, and accomplishing good every day, and it brings power to the people. The kind of power that changes laws, changes corporate policies, and even changes governments. Moms and dads are using social media to hold our lawmakers accountable and to elevate the issues important to the health and future of our families, such as clean air.

Please join us for this blog radio discussion, which will get you in the right mind set for the BlogHer ‘11 session, Impact: Change the World – Malcolm Gladwell is Missing the Point: Revolutions are Happening Online, also moderated by Cheryl Contee.
