If you’re a citizen, and you vote, there’s power in that. If you’re a worker, and you work, there’s power in that too. If you use social media, you’re connected, but so what, where’s the power? The cold blooded answer is that there isn’t any. At least not on the scale needed. If you were enticed to be involved with social media more for the amplifying of your voice, for expressing your ideas, for making your view of the world visible to more and more people, which I was, then you need to rethink your approach to social media. Because the power you get is so neglible that the time spent on it is probably not worth it.
