Like water for the desert, New Media for New Mexico

will social media save us?

in a rapidly evolving culture, where families/regions/nation states seem to be disintegrating before our eyes, can social media become the glue that holds us together?

or is it the enzyme that finally brings a true global revolution?

  1. Facebook is not only the culture of America today but also in other countries too. I absolutely used to be against Facebook up until two months ago. I finally gave in to the demand that Facebook calls for. It really does unite people with ones who were thought to be lost in this so called “busy” world. It brings a sense of joy in my life because I can still be in tune with what is going on back home while im away at college. There are so many opportunities and advantages that Facebook has to offer society today. Although Facebook was originally directed towards college students, it is now available for anyone to access. It is even popular among the elderly today. Technology is now the main source for communication. Facebook provides the tools to meet up with someone or even join a fundraising group and just about anything else with just the click of a button. In the social world, excuses for not communicating with someone are rarely acceptable now because Facebook and many other social networking sites make everything possible.

    and you will see a positive and fun way to bring people of all ages and from all cultures together through the power of music, the universal language…and if all goes well, we will have an event here in Silver City, NM to celebrate with people around the world, the first annual International Playing for Change Global Concert.
