  • IT”S HUGE – digital touches every part of our lives from shopping to travelling to health to entertainment IT’S TINY – digital provides a platform for the smallest niches, and is great at connecting individuals http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnbullas/640965260/sizes/o/in/photostream/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/bneumann/3682531348/sizes/l/in/photostream/
  • IT’S GLOBAL – digital spans the globe and is creating markets and competition from before quiet parts of the globe, from Russia to Brasil IT’S LOCAL – digital can create a local network in seconds and can uncover likeminded individuals and sources of inspiration in your street http://www.flickr.com/photos/54545503@N04/5485516989/sizes/l/in/photostream/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/chr1sp/3688357074/sizes/l/in/photostream/
  • IT’S FAST – you can connect with your audience in real time, gain feedback on the fly and generally make stuff happen as fast as you can think of it IT’S FREE – many platforms are free to use and the only cost is your own time. This can be misleading though. http://www.flickr.com/photos/mightymoss/3098467059/sizes/l/in/photostream/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/yoghurt/2414338156/sizes/l/in/photostream/
