The number of social media users worldwide in 2018 is 3.2 billion, up 13 percent year-on-year. By 2020 almost 5 billion people will be connected.
Given this scale, social media has become the world’s most influential storytelling platform and the stories we tell have the ability to touch and inspire, and shake people to their cores. They can elevate people, educate them, and change them—or, they can divide us and tear us down. Ultimately, stories have the power to influence the world and the people who consume them, and with this influence comes responsibility.
