“It’s been enough. Bad decisions, pain, sadness. Have seen enough. Take care, tweeps. Will look for my bed for the last time”.
The news is filled articles condemning the internet, especially when it comes to internet based social media platforms such as Facebook, Digg, Twitter, MySpace and so on.
However, if you take the time to really look, you will find that sometimes, social media has the power to solve problems and maybe even save lives!
