One of my majors is social media, and that's why I designed and developed WLP (World Leader Proposal).
I realize that this forum is for young gamers who may not care about such social/political issues, but make no mistake, this will affect you over the next 10 years, and how your own kids interact with the world.
When I first joined this forum, I was only in my first year at uni (even though I'm an old BADWORD ) and I was new to PC gaming (used to be a console player). I was also new to forums. 4sg was the first forum I ever joined, and I remember my first post, I bleated on about to Mick "There is something special here, I just can't put my finger on it"
Now I know.
It was my first taste of social media, now I own a forum, am in my last year at uni, and I can finally win some duels (I'm still useless) But the point is, any form of social media, even a forum for gamers, is part of a powerful interconnected structure that just may change the course of human history.
Kony2012 is an example of this.
Now, I submit to you young freaks (I'm 38 by the way ) that if you want more info on Kony2012 from forum users like yourselves, which is not mainstream media, visit http://worldleaderproposal.com/and shock the SHIT out of me, and make me believe that 4sg members are not just gamers, but also people who are interested in how the real world is shaping up.

Anyway, I still think it might be the start of social media rising as a major influence of world issues.
