With all of the social networking sites (SNS) today, a lot of what we do is transferred from analogue to digital. I worry for my children; I want them to experience a bit of analogue before being sent into the unforgiving culture of digital.
Likes don't save lives . Money does. And Vaccines too. Yet social media still remains a site for feel-good clicking rather than actual change.
I must say I was slightly apprehensive about typing up this post. On one hand I love social media - the interconnectedness, ease of sharing, and down-time; but on the other I hate that this medium can at times be more isolating than uniting.
A lot more female politicians are holding their own. They are now running some of the ‘male-dominated’ ministries such as home, defence and foreign affairs. Did you know that South Africa’s central bank governor is a woman?
