The tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back more than 200 years.
While the American Revolution was facilitated by a system of signals and word-of-mouth communication today revolutions are now facilitated by social media.
JACOBS MEDIA Dir./Digital & Social Strategies and MERGE author LORI LEWIS writes, "People no longer have to feel alone. That's the essence of this social space -- to elevate our capacity to connect with each other. While other countries are using social media as a tool to change culture, here at home, 'revolutionary' type stories of social good coming from these platforms, too often, is overshadowed by questionable use."
