Word of mouth and a Facebook event triggered thousands of New Jersey high school students to participate in a walkout yesterday. The event’s current attendance is over 18,000.
According to the Mashable article, “The event was organized by 18-year-old Michelle Ryan Lauto — a Pace University student who once attended high school in New Jersey. Lauto decided to take action after Governor Chris Christie announced that he would be cutting $820 million in educational funding for next year, according to the Hartford Courant.”
It’s great to see social media bringing such a large group of people together for a cause. Many people say that today’s youth are apathetic and self concerned but this proves otherwise.
Check out footage of the protest:

If your company has a Facebook presence, I am okay with it. However, if your company goes about this presence wrong, I am not okay with it.
If I like your business/product/service and you want me to become a fan of your page, I will become a fan of your page. If I really like your business/product/service and you want me to join a group in support of it, I will consider joining. However, I don’t care how much I like your business/product/service, I probably will not accept your company as a friend.
