Power of Your Voice

Power of your VOICE!The world is buzzing and carefully watching Egypt. As democracy takes a new stance in the Middle Eastern world, social media has already seized the Middle East. We saw it’s muscle or power when Egypt shut down the internet. The decision was defied by the people as they sought other ways to update the world. True, we didn’t see tweets in real-time from the residents of Egypt. However, we saw the whole world step in with “#Egypt” in tweets. Hillary Clinton & the White House noticed this power and stepped in asking the Egyptian government to not quench the voice of the people.

Something very similar happened in Toronto, Canada. In May 2009, a post was made on Facebook for Sri Lankan immigrants to protest on the streets of downtown Toronto. On May 10, 2009, protestors amassed on the Gardiner Expressway, cutting off a major artery for highway traffic. Traffic came to a stand still and their voice was heard. 

Another example from popular drama, Grey’s Anatomy, aired on Feb. 3rd, 2011.  One of the main characters in the show decided to tweet about her surgeries.  When a complication arose, her twitter followers suggested alternatives and potentially faster ways to achieve that alternative.  In the end, a life was saved based on the “tweets” or the ubiquitous voice of the people.

In September 2010, I wrote about being the change.  I know your voice will bring a change to the world.  You can already see it’s power in the Middle East.  The world is waiting for your VOICE.

    Mouse Movement Heatmaps

    Mouse Movement Heatmaps track each visitors mouse pointer. SeeVolution’s analytics engine then aggregates that data in real-time, and generates an overlay that shows what visitors are actually paying attention to. White being the hottest color, and blue being the coldest – site owners can quickly see what parts of a website capture the the most attention.

    Each visual overlay aggregates your visitors behaviour and provides an instant peek at how visitors interact with your site.

    Use Mouse Movement Heatmap to find “hot” keywords, images and buttons that visitors tend to pay attention to.

    A site that helps you with Website Heatmaps . Provides information for customers and all website visitors. A wonderful resource.
