  • Stark Reality is a not-for-profit social media platform that aggregates trends and tools. I want to show other non-profits how they can tap into the power of Social Media. Stark Reality also provides an interactive platform for ideas to be exchanged, questions and answers to be shared, and problems solved. If you choose to visit The site please keep in mind everything on the site cost zero dollars. Institutions of higher learning need to stay on top of this Social Media TIDAL WAVE, because when you are in the Midst of a major paradigm shift of this nature, change comes at your from many different directions, and it starts happening faster and faster. The change that I am going to highlight today is the shift from broadcast media to social media. Think of Broadcast media as a one way street, with information traveling in one direction. IT”S OPPOSITE--OR Social Media is an UMBRELLA Term for ALL Digital dialogs : including email, interactive websites, Blogs, Social Media Platforms like linked in, Stumble Upon, You Tube, Facebook, etc.
