As the global communities take advantage of social media to energies and grow her economy towards making life better and worth living for her populace ,it becomes imperative for the need to sensitise our local communities to embrace social media via taking advantage of its huge benefits to develop her local economic productions both human and capital resources.
Before now most nations have embarked on policies to embrace international relations with the view of acquiring technological transfers which are very vital to human and capital developments and to build her educational institutions towards increasing productivity. However most of the huge sum spent to acquire these technologies were flushed into the drain for lack of relevance of such technologies to the subscribers.
It is obvious that huge amount of money have been lost via importing experts from different nations of the world to train and impart technological knowledge. Most times the safety and harsh weather conditions may limit the quality of such personels in discharging their duties. The time frame too may pose another setback as the technology question may be hurriedly disposed to the subscribers without proper test running it’s working values for the proposed acquisition.
Knowledge we agree
is power if it is rightly chanelled towards a valuable purpose and the right type of such valuable knowledge do not come without huge spending of monies hence ignorance thrives in most poor nations who may find it difficult to embark on such expenditures thereby further throws them so many years behind developed nations.

Social Media has done so much in cultural exchanges and has also brought technology to our door steps.
