A question we can’t help but ask ourselves even if we don’t pay much attention to news. The reason we can’t help but at least know about the situation in Egypt is thanks largely to social media. If you’re on twitter or facebook or like browsing youtube, you’ll have seen the tweets, updates & videos coming out of Egypt…
Which is a good thing of course. Traditionally we just sit back and watch events unfold and perhaps talk about how awful they are. That was in the days of TV. We’d then move quickly on with our own relatively peaceful lives. We still do that today but by helping to spread this information (which social media allows us to do easily), pressure is put on governments. They know eyes are watching internationally and any mistakes they make will get magnified.
