We couldn’t let the Thanksgiving holiday week slip by without a quick post of gratitude – in honor of you. You are our co-conspirators, our inspiration for new ideas and fresh content, and you push us to produce more thoughtful conversations here on Social Citizens. Let’s face it, 2009 has been a tough year no matter who you are - but it’s nice to know that our social networks (both in real life and right here online) are helping us be even better when it comes to showing our thanks.
Think about it, you can “friend” someone or “retweet” what they say. You can “like” and “rate” and “vote” and “comment” - all are gestures of gratitude even if you could never get your Uncle Al to understand what it is you do all day, while reaching across the table to pass him the bowl of cranberry sauce. But, these gestures of gratitude are built in to what we do – they are our new social currency and in this economy, the great thing is, they won’t cost you a thing.
In case you haven’t shown your gratitude as part of Tweetsgiving
, learn more from the great folks at Epic Change
and help The Twitterkids
raise money to build an additional classroom, cafeteria, and library in Arusha, Tanzania.
This Thanksgiving remember what you’re grateful for – there are plenty of ways to do so. From our blog to your feed, Happy Thanksgiving!
