I'm ambivalent about it. On the one hand, I think it's a great thing that people are getting access to information through social networking that they wouldn't have ten years ago. However, it still hasn't provoked the kind of meaningful discussion that it should have by this point. Everyone still talks about "Africa" like it's a country and assume that all of the issues affecting that region are the same across the board. I don't think an internet meme is going to un-homogenize people's thinking about global issues.
