This week we've seen the incredible power of the web to spread a story as the Kony 2012 video went viral, generating over 50 million views in less than a week.
Social media holds tremendous power to ignite social change movements through instantaneous sharing, and today we're profiling a social business doing just that.
beremedy connects social media users with causes that can benefit from awareness, a critical component of positive change. They ask Facebook and Twitter users to use their networks to help spread the word.
"beremedy alerts people when someone in their community needs help. Members then respond to the message or pass on the message to those they feel can."
Thus far their efforts have been focused on Atlanta, where they are based; however, shortly after a recent CNN story created buzz around the startup, beremedy announced on their website that they have plans to expand nationwide.
