What is the true power of social media?
There have been lots of these kinds of videos popping up on YouTube and other Internet video sites lately. They contain some really interesting facts. I liked this video because the very last line really made me think - "We don't know how to act upon it." I think that is the problem with agriculture is the tools are out there to tell our story, we just aren't using them. They are proven to be effective, they are easy and it is the quickest way to get our story out there, yet so many of us are still not doing it.
It's plain and simple - we have to embrace these technologies, tell our stories, or else be OK with the fact that we won't be able to farm the same way our parents or even we are today because groups like PETA and HSUS are going to be deciding the rules by which we make our livelihoods. Start your blog, open your Twitter account, update your Facebook status, or talk to someone in your grocery store about agriculture TODAY!
