The Power of Participation

Through the participation methods of sharing, commenting, and liking, this post about a student from guelph university who suddenly passed away recieved the attention of a famous singer she idolized, John Mayer. After her passing, a friend of Kayleigh’s created a post on Ellen Degeneres Facebook page, trying to get her attention to pass on a message to John Mayer about this young girl and how much of an impact he had on her life. She shared a special bonding with her father over one of his songs and last night at his concert in Toronto, John honoured her the song after he sang it. This all became possibly simply through the power of participation on the social networking site of Facebook. Recieving thousands of likes and comment, a dream came true that no one knew would!
