Social media has a way of bringing out the stars of our world

How fast is the world going to spin before we take stock of the important things in life? I am a huge passionate fan of technology, a real geek when it comes to new products and gadgets. From the very first day on social media I realized that it was something interesting, something different and something powerful.

Obviously current history is proof of one side of this power. From the Middle East revolutions to the outpouring of sympathy and support for both New Zealand and Japan has delivered a timely reminder of the good things we are capable of in this world.

No matter how fast our lives move in this day and age nothing is more awe inspiring, more endearing and powerful than seeing people reach out across the world and show they care. In a world that can sometimes appear cold and greedy, social media is becoming a platform that can, if you filter through it, really does bring wonderful people rising to the surface.

I find it incredible that of the nearly six thousand people I follow on Twitter there are around two hundred people that are just incredible people. So giving, so warm and they are so generous that it makes all the selling, shouting and ego’s that can appear simply fade away.

Don’t get me wrong, a lot of the other people are wonderful as well, but there are some serious stars that just sparkle in our world and I feel proud to have met them. During the current disasters their generosity and care seems to know no bounds.
