'Twitter and Facebook cannot change the real world, says Malcolm Gladwell
The bestselling author of The Tipping Point has enraged social network users by dismissing their impact on real issues '

'Social networks, those loose, busy and self-absorbing communities of Facebookers and Twitterers, have always invited analogies from the insect world. If we are to accept the most common of them, then in the past week, Malcolm Gladwell, provocateur-in-chief at the New Yorker magazine, has poked a sharp stick into the online ants' nest.'

Tim Adams , The Observer, Sunday 3 October 2010

You are kindly invited to read Guardian's article about Mr. Malcolm Gladwell's vision regarding the impact of social networks on real life and then to watch Mr. Andrew Keen's key note at Research Conference, few days ago in London.
I would love to see these wonderful gentlemen debating live ,on You Tube, the future of world.
