Love your neighbor? Want to practice love and support your community? Join us in our community micro influencer movement.
A Community Influencer is a social asset who can influence the community by creating social value for the community, and in this particular case, bridging the gap of “digital divide” for less privileged groups in our community.
The digital divide is a term that refers to the gap or any uneven distribution in the access to, use of, or impact of information and technologies, between any distinct less-privileged groups, demographics or regions.
As we all notice, we are on the brink of the unprecedented digital revolution in the New Digital Economy in the 21st century. The rapid advance of technology significantly impacts how we live and learn, and the local community we belong to and increases the digital divide gap.
