Paul Borrud from Facebook spoke at SMCYD tonight. He kindly updated us all on Facebooks latest statistics, upcoming releases & shared some of his favourite campaigns. During the presentation he touched on some of Facebook’s (if you will) extracurricular activity, one being in the form of Facebook Peace – something I hadn’t heard of before.

What Facebook Peace does is show the friend connections created each day between people of different countries, religions and political affiliations.

Facebook Peace

Kudos to Facebook. It just shows, no matter what foul-play is a steak between country leaders, real people still manage to connect and interact regardless of their political or historical differences. Is peace possible? Maybe not between leaders at this stage, but Social Media here clearly demonstrates that real people are at peace with one another.
