Do you participate in much Social networking? Do you read and post at Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram? If so, you are are in the majority!
According to a site called Mavrck, as of January 2014, 74% of online adults use social networking sites.
On Thursday, Clay Aiken decided to get back to his Facebook and Twitter accounts. First, he changed his picture on Facebook and probably did some cleaning up of the site. Later in the day, he tweeted 3 times and garnered a lot of attention. Commenting and using #CrimingWhileWhite and #DoBetterAmerica, Clay’s tweets were in response of the Grand Jury decisions that have just taken place. Clay received thousands of retweets and even more Favorites…plus many comments. Because of the volume of responses, Clay also picked up many new Followers.
