Our current health service has some good new life saving technology but it has been hijacked by the pharma industry and generally concentrates on illness and managing it with pharmacology that often causes more illness owing to unwanted side effects of medication.. The government has just pumped another 100 million into drug research, swelling their profits yet again, might that money be better spent on prevention and health care?The purpose of this group is to look at a service promoting our…See More

What is the role of social media like Occupii, Facebook and Twitter in occupations and protests? Was the Arab spring a "Twitter and Facebook" revolution? How does the Occupy movement use social media? Is it a social media movement or something different?
We are a group of researchers at Uppsala University in Sweden that is headed by me and that is keen to find out answers to these questions. Therefore we conduct the OccupyMedia! Survey. We invite some users of Occupii to participate in it, and were therefore happy if you could take 15 minutes time in order to help us find out what role social media play in contemporary protests:
If you have any more questions about the survey, please contact us. If you do not find time to participate or simply find such surveys not interesting or annoying, then please simply ignore our request and excuse any inconvenience. Thanks a lot!

I started chatting and made so many friends and it was then I realized, that I had been wrapped up in my own small…
