There are some events that are enhanced by sharing them through social media; the attention, praise and details always appreciated. They are far outweighed by those that are made worse with global coverage such as racially fuled shootings, terrorist attacks and acts of war. So it is these positive events in history that we want to recognize as social media worthy.
Social media today documents every facet of our lives, no event is too big, no event is too small. How did the human race ever get along without Facebook, Twitter and YouTube?
Several historical events in our past would have benefited from the continuous social media attention. Those events include ones with a more upbeat tone, ones recognized as mysteriously haunting us for years as well as celebrations and achievements in our history.
It’s in our nature to be curious about these events with far less documentation then we are used to. Check out the list of those events we wish social media had been around to document.
