WHY SOCIAL MEDIA Social Media is about connecting, creating, and communicating. We connect individuals by creating a community within the space. These communities allow users to make a connection to one another, to a cause, and to their passions. Once users have connected via social networks they can begin to communicate with one another and share important, relevant information. For Walk MS and Bike MS participants, users can connect with their friends, family and potential supporters to effectively increase awareness, inspire new members, and encourage others to donate to their walk or ride.
