What I especially like about this post is that it focuses on the 'social' benefits of social media rather than the business benefits. With the exception of #5 it is written for and geared to the layman. I get so tired of attempting to understand posts about how social media can transform ones business when it is written in a language that only the inner circle of marketers understand (or do they?).
Thank you Samantha Rupert for illustrating that social media is for everyone. It has value and daily life applicability. It is not just for the geeks and for those who need to share with the world what they ate for breakfast.

This article is a great reflection on the importance of social media today. In the beginning it was simply a distraction that was bringing an end to common courtesy. Now it is revolutionizing communication in the most important and common interactions. This article highlights those interactions and how social media is increasing productivity and efficiency in all the right ways.

Nice Article indeed!!
For me, Taking an example of Uttarakhand disaster in India was a huge traedy but with the help of social media the victims has been helped and the fooding and materials has been served to the needy. Donations has been flowed in huge amount to help the flood victims. This is all the power of Social Media. And everyone is benefiting from it in one or the other way.
