Although you may see a good share of funny jokes, crazy rants, and sweet little nothings on Facebook and Twitter, this week may highlight social media’s ability to not just connect people – but also help them deal with grief and tragedy.
Remembered, never forgotten.
With the tenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center, we mark a whole new world – one where social media has come to play a huge role not only in social lives and business growth, but in providing a communal forum to laugh, cry, and even grieve together.
Now, when individuals recall the tragedies of 9/11, they can share their memories and stories instantly and virtually, and receive condolences, commiserations, and sympathies from friends, family and associates world-wide.
So, this September 11, as we honor the fallen and relive the events that have since shaped the nation and the world, we can also remember that, now more than ever, we are never alone.
