Will social media change history? (Part III) Yes, it has already

One and a half years ago, I posted this about Iran, concluding that "whether or not this is enough to topple a government remains to be seen, but social media is surely making history and contributing to democracy."

These days, social media - together with email and SMS - is powering leaderless revolutions across North Africa and the Middle East.


PS Euan Semple draws an interesting parallel between desire for change in countries and in organisations.
