dc.description.abstract

Social media is social. It is important for us all and it should be open to all....It is not necessarily about living a life on the Internet. It is about bypassing distance in the real world, making new friends, and participating in all the conversations between our family members and the communities we live in....Social media can break down barriers and change lives. For example, a hearing impaired child can now share stories with their friends via Skype, and a vision impaired user can read about his brother's trip to the Far East via a blog site....Social media is truly social. It connects the dots.
