Queen Rania Embraces the Power of Social Media

June 12, 2009 at 8:33 am 1 comment

There are many incredible opportunities through social media, but what excites me most is its power to break down barriers, promote understanding and generate meaningful dialogue.  Queen Rania of Jordan agrees, as she shares on her her YouTube Channel’s spoof of Dave Letterman’s top ten list.

“…I wanted to kick start a conversation in the world’s largest community, because we’re stronger when we listen, and smarter when we share…”

Kudos to Queen Rania for choosing to be a leader in the fight against intolerance and engaging her subjects, and the world, through social media.  I’m inspired by her message, and I look forward to hearing more from her.

She’s a great role model for PlumbBrain kids as they experience the same incredible power of conversation by engaging in PlumbBrain’s social media tools to improve their relationships and communications with parents, peers and mentors.

(Thanks to Roger Clague for sharing Queen Rania’s message with me and sending this great post!)
