The Sheer Power of Social Media in a Story.

This story touched us so much that we felt the need to share it with all of our readers.  It demonstrates the frightening power of social media and to be honest makes you fall in love with it all over again!  Jenessa Simons, a woman who had never met her own real birth parents decided at 18 that she was going to do all she could to find them.  She began filing all of the necessary paper work needed to complete such an operation, but she'd have to wait 3 years to properly submit it all.

Deciding she was bored of waiting, she decided to try using Facebook to find her real Mum and Dad.  She posted this photo:


It took just two days for her birth mother to see the image and get in touch.  TWO DAYS.  When it was going to take 3 years to just file the necessary forms?  Two days.  It is truly amazing, and shows you how connected the world is these days.  I'd like to think it is also a little reminder that social media isn't just for pictures of dogs in hats (although that is a brilliant part of it), it is also a great tool that can be used to achieve outstanding things!
