Where everyone has own stage and the same opportunity to share their opinions; where everybody have thousands of friends; where you must appear cool, to impress your “followers”; where if you have enough “like”, maybe you are someone.
But, thanks to social networks, we can share culture, events, petitions, join groups of common interest, share experiences,promote our work or our passions, travel easily around the planet, create and maintain relationships, keep in touch with people we love, if we are living abroad, and overall be informed on the news around the earth and the changes that our world makes every day.
