My boyfriend and I were talking about facebook revolutions. I was sharing with him some of the things that we discussed in class because we both work with a campus ministries network spanning across the Mid-Atlantic. Here's an article that he shared with me; he found it not too long ago. I thought what the article says is FASCINATING, especially when it talks about the little light going off on your blackberry and how you find approval in that!
This is a little bit of a tangent from the above article, but I just wanted to throw this out there--if we DID start a facebook revolution and facebook suddenly went down, how long would that revolution be sustained? Before the internet, people communicated through letters, word of mouth, mail, horsemen, armies, and all that other stuff. Would we be able to get back to that? And if we can, why rely on facebook? Which is more powerful?
