-- The continuous string in Spain of hash tags #rescue leave no doubt: social networks have become the major means of communication for Spanish citizens to express their opinions. And according to Juan Merodio www.JuanMerodio.com one of the most important voices in Web 2.0 Marketing online in Spain, these are the best representatives of news and ideas that we could ever dream of. "Social networks have demonstrated themselves to be democratic, swift, and uncensored. They represent the voice of citizens who have decided to transmit into channels such as Twitter happenings and their opinions on them and right now we see how social networks are flooded with feedback; in fact one of the hash tags created in Twitter is #rescue", says Merodio.
Juan Merodio also believes that the dialogue found in Spanish social networks on topics reflects the reality of the way many Spaniards feel about the current situation. Moreover, this renowned expert considers that social networks can define a before and after in view of events and the Government of Rajoy. "I think that, although for the moment social networks will not change the decisions of politicians, they will begin to change many things; for example, the possibility to influence politicians in decision-making;
after all we are all affected by what others say", believes Merodio.
Finally, Merodio advised people to leave their opinions in social networks so that the politicians take note. Merodio ends by saying, "the way that they can hear us is none other than to participate;
this verb is the one that best defines what we can do to transmit and voice our opinions”.
