Social media tools that allow you to post pictures and videos are very helpful tools to let folks get a glimpse of life from your point of view.
Recently, one of the most repressive governments, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, North Korea to you and me, allowed two reporters to begin to use Instagram to share photos of their country. Since so few people travel to North Korea or are allowed to share images that aren’t heavily censored, it is a very interesting view of a place you and I have never seen before.
Looking at it from the point of view of a person with disability, how would you want to share your life in pictures with someone who may not have seen how someone with a disability lives? How would you want to do a video using Vine or YouTube? As an Arc staffer, you know that just like the photos from North Korea, there will be nothing different than what we all experience everyday. But not everyone knows that yet. You and I are the ones who will need to show others via viral social media tools.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Don’t just use 999. Use all of them!
