With a few decades of experience over our shoulders, the verdict is in: a meaningful online presence builds lasting connections between people, places, & things. For better or worse, Google Search has become the de facto phone book of record while just about every person, organization, business - everyone reachable - is present online.
Despite the Cambridge Analytica fiasco and online advertising usurping online privacy, Facebook reports over 2 billion daily active users, Instagram 800 million, with 3.5 billion daily searches on tax dodging Google. Online media can strengthen and grow home grown arts, business, organizations, and civic minded advocacies. More than ever what we listen to, read, and purchase - matters. Connecting online offers opportunities for all New Yorkers, and sharing home grown media can put a dent in New York income and wealth inequality.
