COVID-19 has underscored the incredible importance of our digital world. While we #stayathome, social media, in particular, is helping us stay connected with one another.
More than ever, social has become our source for news, our community centers, our water coolers, our town squares, and our shopping malls. In addition, social media companies including Facebook and Twitter are offering critical public infrastructure, helping government agencies, hospitals, and healthcare organizations coordinate fast responses and inform citizens.
But we are also seeing the benefits individually, as social media becomes an irreplaceable tool for connection during this time of #socialdistancing.
