Have you ever been totally frustrated with something as a consumer? Maybe you are annoyed at hidden costs, or maybe you wish airlines would let you check one bag for free. If you are a blogger, perhaps you wish that Google Adsense wouldn't just delete accounts with no warning. You know people agree with you on your issue, but there seems to be no solution.
Social Power is helping by creating solutions! If you have an issue, take to social power and document it. Then, your issue can be shared across all forms of social media. Those who agree with you can support your issue. Once 1000 people agree with your issue, then it becomes an initiative. Once your issue becomes an initiative Social Power goes to work with all of their connections and begins to make a difference
So what's my issue? What would I like to see resolved? Hmmm, there are a lot of things I would want changed, like more fair trade and stopping bullying, bibles in schools and stuff like that. But all those are for change.org.
So what is something small, but feasibly changeable that I would like to see changed?
I would like to see better labeling on products. In particular I would like to see better labeling concerning GMOs. The argument is that they are not harmful. Ok, so they don't harm me, good to know. Still, everything else is labeled on there, why can they not tell us when they are using GMOs? Seems to me like, if there is nothing wrong with them, then they should be ok with telling us. After all, they tell us sugar and stuff like that, and sugar can be harmful. So why not share what (according to them) is not harmful?
So on Social Power I created an issue. I asked that companies show whether or not the product was made with GMOs. I want to know what I'm putting into my body. Do you agree with me? You can go here, and support the issue. 🙂
Small steps, and small changes. It can be done. I'll leave the big issues to some-one a lot smarter than I. 🙂
