From helping Haiti, to NBC’s late night troubles, to the Google vs. China debacle, read on for the highlights of this week in the world of social media.
The Red Cross coordinated a text messaging campaign to allow Americans to donate $5 or $10 to assist with the Haiti efforts. Social media has enabled this campaign to be a tremendous success.
Awareness has spread, and Knexu.org, “a help engine,” is now being used for sharing updates about those missing in Haiti.
Help Haiti is a trending topic on Twitter, and last night donations reached $5 million. The latest figure I’ve seen is $8 million.
For those that ask, does anything good come from Twitter? I think I’ve answered your question.
