JACOBS MEDIA Dir./Digital and Social Strategies and MERGE author LORI LEWIS writes, "Social media has elevated free speech and offered the ability to change cultures and sometimes even depose dictators.
"People no longer have to feel alone. We can share our stories globally.
"That's the essence of this social space – to raise our capacity to connect with each other. Here at home, while we've had a few 'revolutionary' type stories of social good coming from these platforms, too often, the good is overshadowed by questionable use."
