Obviously, it would be very old news if I talk about the recent revolutions in both Tunisia and Egypt. The two people are now planning for the post-revolution era. I also, wouldn't be telling a secret if I tell that social networking services like Facebook and Twitter contributed to the success of both revolutions.
But just think of it. Wasn't Facebook solely a means of entertainment? Do you remember those arguments about Facebook being a space for teenagers and those having nothing else to do? How many articles we read or discussions we got involved to about how it is fed by the CIA and it's used to track people's trends for political purposes?
Facebook today is a hero. Together with Twitter and YouTube and other social networking services, they became the new tools for revolutionists and protesters. This is a huge change in our culture.
Do you think that the way we think and behave will remain the same about these new channels of communication? It's not about social networking, Look at the different internet media services, they have definitely raised the limit of freedom of expression.
