Research suggests that social media can be a source of negativity and loneliness — but what if we started putting a positive spin on the conversation?
That’s what the microblogging platform Tumblr is hoping to do with their new Post It Forward initiative. The company partnered with influential people as varied as Vice President Joe Biden and “Pitch Perfect” actress Brittany Snow to help spread one simple message: You are valued — and you are not alone.
Proudly introducing Post It Forward. The idea is simple: If you have a message that might help someone through a tough time, then someone out there needs to hear it. Even if you just want to promote awareness, this is your place to do so.
The story of your life can change someone else’s. #PostItForward.
