In addition to being used for art and documentation, photographs have long been a medium of communication. This is even more true in this social networking age in which photographs can easily be used to tear people down or build people up. This heartwarming video published over at Facebook Stories is a great example of the power of socially shared photos. Here’s the brief synopsis:
When a high-school athlete was blamed for a losing season, his entire school had his back. See how his classmates turned something as common as their profile pictures into an extraordinary act of support.
The whole “change your profile picture in support of a cause” thing is nothing new, but this is a pretty awesome example of it being used to make a positive difference in someone’s life.
Thanks for sending in the tip, Sam!
