Social Media As An Information Pipeline Is Here To Stay. But That's Good!
Social media is how I get a lot of information, and I'm sure that's how you guys get a lot of information. Naturally it has its drawback and I have to be honest, the thought of being caught up within my own biases (this internet age has all these platforms predicting my every move before i make it! It's insane!) I embrace with all sincerity the new ways of finding communities and tribes that it has put before us!
Case in point is how I found out about Teach For Nigeria who are crowdsourcing teachers! Ok to explain it in their own words:
Now honestly I've only ben able to explore the information in a limited way but it look like a great initiative and a good way to enable well meaning citizens ( you and me) get more involved in the sort of country we end up in. And educating ourselves is a very good way to start. Well done to the founders.
