Ukraine: Represents 34% Internet & 27% Social Media Globally …
Weaponless, ordered Forcibly dispersed by their own President, Ukrainian People risked their lives defining hope, freedom, Democracy and themselves at Євромайдан/Euromaidan. Keeping cell phones recording, without backing down, I watched it all …On Thursday 20th February 2014 violence between protesters and police in Ukrainian capital of Kiev exploded as each group fought for control of Євромайдан.Never Before had a social Media site been directly responsible for being THE prime source of footage, news updates, truth or details for the world. As a Ukrainian myself, I am grateful to Social Media for its coverage, and momentuum.
What is a Mobli?
And How was it used? To broadcast a Revolution?
Much like Instagram, Mobli acts as a “visual search engine” and allows users to
follow friends and search hashtags. However, Mobli actually has more features than its forefather and boasted video-sharing capabilities long before they were available on Instagram and Vine."
"Mobli is a real-time visual media platform made up of subject-based channels such as people, places & topics. Mobli enables users to see the world through other people’s ... [Phones]." - Mobli
Which characterizes many of the network effects of communication technologies and networks such as an Intranet, TCP/IP Networking, Social Networking (READ: SOCIAL COMMUNITY BUILDING), and the Internet at large.
Likewise, in social networks, the greater number of users with the service, the more valuable the service becomes to the community. However the social utility of a network depends upon the number of nodes in contact.
The law has often been illustrated using the example of fax machines: a single fax machine is useless, but the value of every fax machine increases with the total number of fax machines in the network, because the total number of people with whom each user may send and receive documents increases.
With 73% of the world using mobile devices to access the Internet, and given Mobli's unique UI/intuitive/addictive design... why still only 12 million (I think that number is soft) users?
"The Relevance Paradox"
"Relevance paradoxes occur because of implementation of projects without awareness of the social or individual tacit knowledge within a target community. The understanding of the individual and the social tacit knowledge in a given community, which is a function of knowledge emergence, is the foundation of effectiveness in leadership practice."
"Diffusion of Innovations"
The rate of adoption is defined as the relative speed in which members of a social system adopt an innovation. Rate is usually measured by the length of time required for a certain percentage of the members of a social system to adopt an innovation (Rogers 1962, p. 134). The rates of adoption for innovations are determined by an individual’s adopter category. In general, individuals who first adopt an innovation require a shorter adoption period (adoption process) when compared to late adopters.
Adoption is an individual process detailing the series of stages one undergoes from first hearing about a product to finally adopting it.Isreal, Russia, Ukraine, South America, Arab Countries, and The Phillipines make up the strongest Early Adopters Worldwide
The U.S. accounts for 10% Global net usage, only 11% Social Media Penetration
Foreign to the U.S., most other countries gravitate toward image-based sharing, language is much less of a factor communicating this way -
The Communication Systems, and Systems analysis itself has been around since long before there was an "Internet", and the one you knew 3, even 4 years ago - is gone.
But that's another article. I see no reason Phil Butler's observations are mutually exclusive to your comment, nor mine. Hierarchical thinking is a zero sum game; clearly we all three have reached a Multiplicity of Emergant Intelligence.
For which I thiank you both, and encourage you to check out my slideshow.

Sorry you feel that way, but I respect your opinion. I did not ingnore those hashtags at all, they simply did not show up in the last 7 days as prevalently as some others. I suggest anyone with the resources and time, just wade right on in. If you read the post and looked at the graphics you surely saw #Euromaidan up there.
As for the hype, in English, that is all there is in my view. I suggest anyone interested read this from Russia Today (just to get a balance that is)
Being late? I am not sure about that Rupert, I am a pretty old guy. We stated studying back when I worked in Naval Intelligence a long time ago. Ineptness on the Ukraine Presidents part, I think that goes without saying, even Putin called him "slippery" more than once. The #Springs? Those just sprung up just because it was time if you read the news. So did Ukraine. But I am oversimpifying Rupert, I am sorry. Late here in Germany. You deserve better, I'll get more in depth in the next go round I promise.
Thanks for taking the time to be in the conversation, that is crucial at this stage.

What a great shame that a contributor to this site has not only arrived late to the party, but has utterly ignored: # # # the hashtags of the past few months, indeed the first recorded mention I am aware of is from 24th November, 2013.
I would suggest all should ignore the hyperbole and check the facts.
Many are proclaiming that Social Media made this event occur, as was the case for #IranElection #ArabSpring, neither of which succeeded, as #EuroMaidan has shown it succeeded because of inept leadership by the President and the individual bravery of the citizenry.
