Face Twits World

Golden Globe-winning movie, The Social Network, tells the story of an era-shaking ether earthquake. A new world platform was born of a father with flimsy ethics. On the upside, isolated suppressed citizens of third world countries are now able to confront inequities through far away ‘friends’ or ‘tweets’. Witness Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen. Faces of rich and poor are stark images on a screen inciting revolutions, even coups d’etat. In developed nations, it has created a new definition of ‘friend’. Cyber ‘friends’ are not loyal, trusting people with shared experiences, but photos on a wall or tweets on a page.

FaceTwitsWorld. Moral limbo with shattered boundaries, loyalties? Infinite network that brings everyone together? A good thing? A bad thing? We’ll see.
