Nowadays, our world is social media. Thanks to Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, GMail, etc. we suddenly have the ability to keep track of hundreds of our friends. Literally hundreds. Sometimes, seeing that friend counter on sites like Facebook blows my mind. I alone can reach around 500 people I have met or known in the past few years and almost all my friends can reach the same amount of people or more. This alone gives each of us an amazing tool of spreading information easily and quickly. So once in awhile, why not use it for good? I love this video made by the World Food Programme not only because it so effectively uses infographics and statistics to bring important facts into perspective, but also because it focuses on such a valid point: every day we use the internet for the most mundane conversations, so why not use it to start a conversation about important issues like world hunger?
