In the interview with Dave Fanning on Ireland's national RTE2FM station I argued that social media is a force for good.
I believe the openness and transparency that is forced on us by being involved in social media are a huge long term cultural benefit. Corruption, trickery and fraud are all exposed by openness and transparency.
In Ireland we have suffered too much from all these ills.
I know social media is no magic wand, which will change us all overnight, but slowly, with each post, the veil of secrecy is lifted, just a little.
Listen to some of this argument in this ten minute interview here.
