The society lives in a social media bubble. People are more likely to believe in what they see than on the things they hear. The social media has become the leading source of information dissemination in the 21st Century. Embrace the social media, go digital and you will create a political tsunami.
We live in a digital age. A larger percentage of human activities in this present age revolve around the internet and the ICT.

The ability of an information posted on the internet to reach millions of users in a single click has made the internet a remarkable asset in all facets of human endeavors.
